Made for the “celebrity” restaurateur/chef/cook/television personality Stefano de Pieri by Woolworth’s liquor arm. The fruit is grown by the viticultural pioneers, the Chalmers family at Merbein, in North West Victoria. Exclusive wine to Cellarmasters.
Stefano de Pieri, Merbein Vineyard, Fiano, Victoria, 2017
A slightly subdued nose with indistinct lemon citrus, green pear and an annoying brown sugar sweetness that I can’t seem to give any other descriptor to, over fresh green salad leaves. Has a balanced palate, showing some textural layers before plenty of racy acidity. A pleasant finish that shows fruit and a liberal seasoning of salinity to pretend you’re in the Mediterranean.
RRP: $15 (per dozen buy)
