Vintage 2016 was challenging in many ways; hail at flowering followed by 400mm of rain in January placed immense disease pressure on fruit. Hot dry weather in between ensured even and consistent ripening, while the loose bunch structure of Fiano stood it in great stead after the rain. An exciting, emerging varietal in the Hunter Valley.
