Ravensworth - Fiano & Fizz 2021
Region: Hilltops, Riverland, Murrumbateman
Grapes: Fiano, Zibbibo, Riesling
Hand harvested fruit from the Canberra district and surrounds, macerated with a little skin contact, then blended before bottling and left to condition. A fresh and textured pet nat with citrus, stone fruits and flowers abounds.
This year’s blend is Fiano, Zibbibo and Riesling. Fruit was harvested by hand, and the Fiano and Riesling saw two days of skin contact before being pressed directly to foudre and fermented dry. The blend then joined the Zibbibo (with skins) for a soak until the sugars reached 10 g/l residual. This was bottled and completed fermentation and conditioning over six months. No adds, no disgorgement. You got it, F & F is a pét nat this year. This is a living beverage, and so as a young wine it will be very active, but this will stabilise over time
