Hastwell & Lightfoot Fiano 2018

Mark Hastwell and Martin Lightfoot celebrated 30 years through the 2018 vintage. No mean feat in this day and age. 30 years ago the number one song in Australia was Don’t Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin. Sorry for the ear-worm. Anyway, this Fiano is made from vines grafted in 2016 on 12 year old roots

Hastwell & Lightfoot, Fiano, McLaren Vale, 2018

Light stone fruits folded into sweet dough with grilled lemon flesh and tea tree. Solid palate weight with a dab of richness. Buttery citrus and stronefruit, balanced by a briny, yeasty nutty tang. Medium length juicy finish, Serve chilled to keep the acidity up and serve with a pan fried slab of barramundi and native spice dukkah.
