2014 Kangarilla Road Duetto
Citrus marmalade combined with crystallised ginger and freshly baked shortbread aromas provide inviting hints to the intriguing flavours of this wine. An amazingly textural palate with tangy marmalade notes and aromatic fruits including apricots, quince and feijoa.
Texture and freshness are key components of this wine. We fermented 20% of the fruit in traditional clay amphoras for eight weeks before pressing the juice. The rest of the fruit was fermented separately using naturally wild yeasts which also add a complex component to the wine.
Vermentino hails from Sardinia and typically shows crisp acidity and texture while the Fiano comes from Campagna in the south of Italy and tends to show more weight and breadth, making it two combine beautifully. Both wines underwent wild fermentation and 20% of each variety remained on skins in traditional clay amphoras, yet were kept and treated quite separately in the winery.
Food Pairing Notes
The fresh style and texture of the Duetto makes this a great wine with antipasto, particularly olives, white anchovies, semi-dried tomatoes or other marinated vegetables.
