What the Experts Say
Grown on the Chalmers vineyard in the Heathcote region.
Granny Smith apples. Fresh, crisp, cut with lemon and infused with sandalwood. Textural through the back half, dry to close, immaculate.
91/100 - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
The first Heathcote wine we’ve featured (along with its GSM sister, which Mixed Tasting Club members will also enjoy this month), and what a way to introduce the region - all sticky nectareous mouthfeel and lashings of lemon myrtle. Fresh and enjoyable, with some intriguing woody flavour going on.
Grown throughout warmer regions in Southern Italy, Fiano thrives in Heathcote's warm days and cool nights. Crafted in a fresh, lively style, the fine palate weight of Tellurian Fiano is enlivened by chalky texture and appealing varietal complexity.
About the Winery
Meaning "of the Earth", Tellurian was born from a passion for Heathcote's unique Cambrian soil and the richly textured Shiraz wines of the region. The vineyards themselves sit in the Cambrian red soil of the slopes of Mt Camel, an area that epitomises the region.
Tellurian's recent innovations have included plantings of Marsanne, Grenache, and the Italian varieties Fiano and Nero d'Avola that particularly suit Heathcote's combination of red soil and warm continental climate.
