2018 Jenny Dobson Fiano, Hawke’s Bay
Fiano finds its home in Italy and plantings in Australia are on the rise. In New Zealand, however, you have to look a bit harder. Thought to be planted in Pompeii, the label shows the explosive Mt Vesuvius. Veteran winemaker Jenny Dobson puts this one under her own name. Typically Fiano exhibits spice and floral characteristics and Jenny’s shows this, along with intense stone fruit flavours, honeysuckle and pink grapefruit.
