Savina Lane Fiano Classico 2013

Savina Lane's Cellar Door occupies a hilltop perch overlooking the vineyards laid out before it, the vines flowing downhill towards the entranceway that snakes around the property, passing the homestead on its left.

As a brand it has been operating since 2012, yet vines have been grown on the property for over fifty years. Wine stewardship is overseen by the impressive Mike Hayes (Symphony Hill, Toppers Mountain), an industry veteran and local legend. 

To the wine in question: florals - honeysuckle, a little citrus peel, stonefruit.

Nicely balanced, textural with remnants of acid; a little chalky pucker, residual mineral feel curling around the palate.

A reach that extends into the far corners of the mouth, impressive length, sustained feel 92
