2020 Skin Party Fiano
Tens of thousands of Fiano whole berries writhe together with zillions of partying yeasties for two weeks in an open fermenter. No intervention except for occasionally stirring the pot and provoking another orgy of fermentation. No fining.
Vineyard and Winemaking info
Fiano from a vineyard in the Northern and high-altitude region of Seaview in McLaren Vale. The grapes were harvested with a selectiv® harvester and tipped straight into small open fermenters as whole berries. Fermentation was allowed to occur naturally and then later over seeded with aromatic yeast. The ferment was allowed to tick away slowly until dry, approx. 3 weeks, when it was pressed to seasoned Hogs Heads. No fining.
