Jenny Dobson ‘Florence’ Fiano 2023

A white wine from the Bush Hawk vineyard in Hawke’s Bay. Fiano is a heritage grape variety hailing from Campania in south west Italy, and Sicily. Rare to find in New Zealand, this one is named after Jenny’s paternal grandmother. A pale gold in the glass, with bright aromatics of white peach, apple, grapefruit, white pepper, hazelnut and a floral lift of lemon blossom and jasmine. The palate is crisp, fresh and brimming with zesty acidity. Coupled to a distinctive phenolic fuzz, with minerality and a pithy texture, it has a youthful energy and drive. Mouth-filling and persistent, the finish is dry and balanced. 92pts
