'First Step' is an ode to the first wine we made together back in 2015 to raise funds for charity. We loved the whole process – and thankfully, so did our supporters. We didn’t realise it at the time, but it was the start of a bigger wine adventure. In 2018, Rollick Wines was born.
Ooh, tell me more about the wine...
'First Step' Fiano is a refreshing, drinkable drop! A grape variety hailing from Southern Italy, this is perfect for a sunny day (or any other day, it's that good)!
GI (region where grapes sourced): Riverland Colour: Pale straw with green tints. Aroma: Intense aromas of nashi pear, baked apple and honey dew melon. Palate: The palate shows fresh flavours of pear skin, apple and cumquat balanced by bright and refreshing acidity, finishing clean with a soft textural finish.
Vintage: 2019 Variety: 100% Fiano Harvest Date: 14th February 2019 Maturation: 100% stainless steel fermentation and maturation before being bottled post vintage
Handpicked grapes were crushed and destemmed directly into the press and allowed 3 hours skin contact before pressing. The wine was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel before regular lees stirring to build texture. The wine was then blended and bottled post vintage.
