Buy of the Week AU

Alternatus Fiano 2017, McLaren Vale, AUD $23

It is great to see this style of white gaining traction. Instead of overt fruitiness, you will find attractive minerality alongside the faint lemon and ripe gooseberry tones. The wine is beautifully balanced and delicately textural. Deliciously reserved. (Screwcap)
