The fruit is sourced from Joe Vaughan’s vineyard at Tuerong on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
As for the name, Vino Intrepido’s James Scarcebrook states: There was a wine produced near Avellino back in ancient Roman times that was called Apianum that some have hypothesized was made from fiano. Apiana is latin for bees, and in this region it’s not uncommon to see bees attracted to the ripe fiano berries. This is where the name for this wine comes from.

Lemon curd, honey and butter with soft nutty/doughy aromas lead to a bright, vibrant lemony springtime drenched palate with a very good texture and excellent balance. Liquid sunshine.
