The Fabric Series
2018 Paisley Linen Fiano
We have sourced this fabulous fruit from the Adelaide Hills where it is elevated and cool, perfect for crisp and tasty whites. The vineyard is not far from the southern tip of Barossa, just outside Williamstown but it falls in the Adelaide Hills GI (GI is short for Geographical Indicator - the boundary line between regions). The Linen Fiano has lemongrass, lime and lemon balm characters. Typical of the variety, it has a textual palette, making it a great food match. There is complexity from a touch of barrel and wild fermentation. It is vibrant, fresh, balanced and great drinking.
2016 Paisley Silk Shiraz
The Barossa Valley is one of the greatest places on the planet to grow Shiraz with typical richness of flavour and great balance. The Paisley Wines Silk Shiraz has all of this and more with a full flavoured palate with blackberry fruit framed with choc mint and vanilla bean oak. The tannins are silky and subtle enough to drink now or will continue to evolve if cellared for a few years.
