Hastwell & Lightfoot, Fiano, McLaren Vale, 2019

Light, bright straw gold in the glass. Hints of sweet nectarine stonefruit and hazlenut with an almond croissant richer doughy nutty character, counterpointed by grapefruit skin. The palate belies the nose: textural and puckering, offering austerity of grapefruit citrus with an intense tight, drawn conclusion. Crying out for food pairing: fleshy white fish is a no-brainer.

RRP: $25
