Domaine Giachino Monfarina 2020

AT FIRST SIP-Lemon flesh, grapefruit, lemongrass, a barely there hint of wild honey as well. Familiar but with a twist, the palate leads with faint pear and white peach before settling into a smooth mineral driven acidity. Lovely lightness on the palate with low(ish) alcohol and distinct alpine crispness. AFTER A FEW-Easy going ski coaster track between the trees.

About This Wine

Monfarina (named after the post-wine joyful dance in Piedmont) is 100% Jacquere and picked by hand. A very slow, chilled press takes place for some 10 days before fermentation begins spontaneously. Malolactic fermentation happens at the vintage's will, sometimes completing 100%, sometimes only a portion.

Under Australian law, you must be over 18 years to purchase alcohol. By entering the Wine Envy website, you acknowledge that you are over 18 years.

Once your payment has been approved, we will book your delivery in through Sendle via either Couriers Please or FastWay / Aramex, for next available pickup. Please allow 4-5 days for most metro areas and up to 10 days for more remote places, (although delivery may occur sooner than quoted). Please note that wine will only be delivered to persons over 18 years of age. You will receive an email notification once your order has been dispatched.

Domaine Giachino is an immediate favourite to anyone who comes into contact with their wines. Based on the Grésivaudan plain in the Savoie region in France (Alpine beauty and aprés ski).

Frederic Giachino began making wine in this unique region almost 30 years ago where he took over 1.5ha of vines on the rocky plain is the remnants of the tragic Mt Granier rock fall in 1248. The terroir that is there today is based off this rock fall centuries ago.  The soil is rich in clay and limestone, only the sturdy vine seems to flourish here at an average altitude of 1500m.

Frederic’s son; David has now joined him in running the domaine, where the viticulture moved to organic in 2006 before biodynamics following shortly after. The domaine champions local varieties rarely seen or heard of outside the region. Till now. We are rapped to have these wines on Australian ground.
