Overview

Duetto is an uncommon blend of Vermentino 66% and Fiano 34%. These varieties are quite new to Australia and originate from Sardinia and the Campagna region of Italy. Vermentino brings freshness and acidity to the wine whilst Fiano contributes breadth and texture. In order to accentuate the textural capacity of these varieties we fermented 20% on skins in traditional clay amphora's. This component remained on skins for 5 weeks before it was pressed. Despite it's time on skins the Vermentino remained amazingly fresh yet beautifully textural. The Fiano, which is a tougher skinned quite phenolic variety, looked so good it probably could have spent longer on skins. Both varieties were fermented separately and underwent wild ferments.
