Kersbrook is on northern end of the Adelaide Hills where the climate is warmer and there is less rainfall than other areas of the Hills. The vineyard is situated at approximately 480 metres above sea level and has some very high sloped areas, with the Fiano planted on an eastern aspect. The vines are over 15 years old and are grown in shallow soils, which have a lot of iron stone through the soil profile.
This wine was made with minimal intervention. Cool fermentation preserved the varietal characters of Fiano. After it was pressed to tank it spent a week being worked on its lees, adding texture and complexity. Fermentation lasted for seven days and then it was bottled immediately to retain the freshness and purity of fruit.
Complex stone fruit aromas are complemented by delicate undertones of floral and Thai basil notes. On the palate there is a great depth of flavour, with layers of texture and a long lasting floral and uplifting finish.
