Amato Vino Riverland Bianco 2016
Winemaker Brad Wehr’s Amato Vino range is the vehicle for emerging Mediterranean varietals, micro batches, and lo-fi winemaking styles. Single vineyards, handpicks, natural ferments, incorporating minimal winemaking input — little or no additives — and unconventional vessles for fermentation and maturation.Bianco is a blend of the Southern Italian varietal Fiano and Balkans varietal Slankamenka Bela. The Fruit is organically grown in the Riverland region in South Australia by Ricca Terra Farms and made with minimal additions by Brad.
It smells of chamomile tea, almond and peach. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, waxy, saline and round with fleshy pear and citrus fruits.
Great match when served cool with trout or salmon dishes.
