Three Italian grape varieties, from four vintages, all grown on Felton Road in Central Otago… now that's something different! This is the second release of this wine that speaks of Central Otago but with a distinct Italian accent. Impressive in every way from the beautiful fruit, juicy texture to the bottle it comes in. A special release indeed.


Winery notes (Multi Vintage – 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)
"Luminous ruby in colour, the nose is dense and beguiling with cherry, licorice, currants, spice, vanilla and sandalwood. Lively on the palate, it is a wine of contrasts, with rich velvety tannin and a lightness of touch over a core of fruit including classic bitter cherry. It combines an earthy grounded quality with a true sense of luxury. An engaging, spirited wine that shows both energy and harmony, reflecting the four vintages from which it is blended. Clean and poised, it is wisdom and exuberance in a glass.

Made in barrel – primarily neutral oak, as the fruit itself has significant tannin. Experiments with oak have led us to a mix of 90% French and 10% Virginian oak. Made with a wild ferment, with no additives other than minimal sulphur at bottling, the key to this wine has been in the fastidious rare-for-New Zealand, multi-vintage approach to blending, creating a wine of real substance, complexity and quality.

Carefully crafted from four vintages with 10% from 2016, 33% from 2017, 24% from 2018 and 33% from 2019, our goal is to create the most complete wine. Some wine from each vintage has been held back to support our intention to deliver a consistently delicious multi-vintage wine at every release."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2019
"A truly blended wine with Italian grape varieties dolcetto, lagrein and barbera from the 2016, 2017 and 2018 vintages. Aromatic with a lifted, smoky nose and a mix of fruit, floral and savoury herb flavours that are best described as "vinous" rather than "fruity"."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
