Jenny Dobson Florence Fiano 2021
Otherwise grown in Campania and Sicily, it’s a treat to find Fiano grown in the sunny, maritime climate of Hawkes Bay. And if Jenny’s interpretation is anything to go by, it’s very well suited there. With yellow stone fruit, citrus florals, hazelnut, and a little grip and texture, this is basically a glass of Southern Italian (or Hawkes Bay) sunshine.
One of Hawkes Bay’s OGs, Jenny Dobson has been winemaking in the Bay since the mid ‘90's. Previous to that, her years of experience in Europe include working with the late and great Stephen Spurrier, working at Domaine Dujac, and most notably her role as Maître de Chais at Château Sénéjac in Haut Médoc. She was in fact the first female to achieve a cellar master position in Bordeaux. With her intricate understanding of wine growing in Hawkes Bay, it’s no surprise and high time that Jenny releases her own wines. The culmination of her talent, experience and passion is evident in every glass.
