blend, reminiscent of the Mediterranean. Bellisimo!

All three varieties were treated in a similar manner, pressed out very slightly to express
delicate f lavours with minimal skin damage and phenolic uptake. The free run juice was then
chilled to 15 degrees and fermented under a strict regime for 2 weeks to ensure maximum
f lavours where extracted and subtle aromas. They were then brought together like a well

The Blend - Trebbiano, Vermentino and Fiano
The climate and growing environment of the King Valley has been known to be uncanningly
similar to that of Southern Italy. Hence, the richness and quality of traditional Italian grape
varieties grow beautifully in the Valley.
Trebbiano is one of the most widely planted varieties of grape in the world. It tends to yield
subtle, fresh and fruity wine. Also known as Ugni blanc, in particular in France, the Trebbiano
family account for around a third of all white wine in Italy.
Vermentino is a light-skinned amber-yellow wine grape variety, primarily planted in Sardinia
and Liguria under the name Pigato. The grapes hang in pyramidal bunches and the vines are
often grown on slopes where they can benefit from the additional light. The grape is said
to have been cultivated in the North of Sardinia, often under the name Arratelau, since the
Fiano is a white Italian grape variety that is grown primarily in the Campania region of
southern Italy and on the island of Sicily. This is a fairly strong f lavored white wine grape .
The grape has a long history in the Campanian region and is believed to have been the grape
behind the ancient Roman wine Apianum.
About the Vineyard:
Ciccone Estate and Outlaws Peak Vineyard are nestled in Cheshunt, in the tranquil and
picturesque King Valley of North East Victoria’s Legends, Wine & High Country, a terrain that
ranges from snow capped Alps to sun baked fields. The valley’s continental climate provides
warm days and cool nights, influenced by the katabatic breeze that sweeps northward down the
valley from the high country. A range of microclimates are available from the slightly warmer
valley f loors to the bracingly cool upper slopes, creating the perfect environment for producing
optimal fruit, which allows us to specialise in a variety of unique wines and styles.
