The Princess' frame isn't weighty but, rather, seductively full in all the right places. She charms with bursts of bright nectarine, melon and pine nut, yet is able to maintain natural poise and composure whilst reigning over her region.

A multi-talented performer that captures the paradox of zesty crunch, perfumed freshness, textural depth and well-proportioned body all in one glass. This makes for a particularly versatile style from this single site in the Mount Lofty Ranges, the perfect partner to all manner of Asian fusion cuisine. It’s filled with lovely complexity of lifted apple blossom, custard apple, nashi pear and grapefruit zest. Concentrated, fruitful, complete and yet beautifully refined, and ready to go. Rating 93 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly (JUN/2013)
"Something for those who enjoy a bit of New World idiosyncracy, for Fiano is hardly a staple grape of Australia. Made using low sulphur and natural yeasts, this is laced with a delightful floral quality, is round and textured, and displays hints of melon and grapefruit." 90+ points ('Must Try'' Weekday White Wine) Decanter May 2014
Winery Tasting Notes
Medium straw with green hues
Lemon, pineapple, nectarine and grapefruit. In Italy it is said Fiano is reminiscent to ‘Pesto in a bottle’ and the Princess possesses pine nut, garlic and basil characters.
Nectarine, white peach, tropical fruit, zesty lemon. Alluring and rich, the Princess isn’t weighty but rather seductively full in all the right places.
Pan-fried white fish fillets, caramelized scallops, fresh crab and king prawns, alternatively Saltimbocca with a twist, chicken, goats cheese and fresh tarragon, wrapped in prosciutto packages and baked.
