Owned by Rachel Atkins and Natasha Mooney, the latest releases of Fox Gordon wines from South Australia came complete with a fashion-inspired ‘look book’ – cute. The family owned business between friends names several of its wines after their children – including Hannah, Louis, George, Abby and Sarah (Sassy). This Princess Fiano (a southern Italian grape variety) is a tribute to the ladies. But unlike some ‘Princesses’, there’s nothing too precious or unapproachable here. A zesty nose full of citrus goodness with hints of herbs, it’s juicy and clean with touches of spice. Crisp but also with some good depth and a lovely, rounded wine – perfect for seafood. Bellisimo ladies!
