Fiano can produce wonderfully complex white wines. Lunate have produced a fine example of what can be achieved with this underrated grape variety. Aromatic nose offering floral notes and hints of honey and spice.
The palate has good weight and plenty of fruit, whilst there is enough acidity to keep the finish fresh and clean. Serious wine for the price.
The colour hits us first, a vibrant rose gold colour that gives away the skin contact factor of our Pinot Gris. Pinot Gris is a variety that can have both white and red grapes in a bunch, giving our wine some skin contact makes the brilliant colour. Fortunately, this also helps with aromas and delivers lifted honeysuckle, dew drop melons and a light vanilla marshmallow, like a summer stone fruit cocktail from the pool bar in most Fiji resorts. Delicate ripe peach flavours and a hint of Nashi develop on the palate and the zingy spice like Auntie May’s sweet fruit cobbler adds a mouthfeel and weight to balance it all out leaving your mouth just salivating enough to want more.
Attractive herby, savoury, mineral character to the nose which shows some lightly aromatic red cherry fruit. The palate has a smooth, elegant fruitiness with a hint of spice as well as a trace of earthy complexity. A light, attractive Pinot Noir of real character.
The fruity nose evokes cherry and raspberry aromas that develop into cassis and liquorice with time in the glass. The palate shows good fruit and a savoury edge on the mid palate.
