Mocandunda Single Vineyard Fiano
The Mocandunda vineyard supplies fruit for many of the region’s most renowned wines, and retains only a small quantity for their own label. The brand is owned by three legends of the industry in South Australia, including viticulturalist Rodger Ackland, who not only founded Mount Horrocks in the 1980s but has planted many (if not most) of the vineyards in Clare. The rustic cellar door knocks out a good pizza too – worth stopping by if you are in the area.
This delicious varietal seems to have found a natural home in the Clare Valley – with the region winning more awards for their Fianos than any other in Australia. This is a richer style of Fiano that has spent time on lees to enhance weight and complexity so is an ideal alternative for anyone who enjoys a Chardonnay or fuller flavoured white. It is redolent of ripe stone fruits with a hint of spice and a delicious nuttiness – and will suit a very wide range of dishes.
