Lot Information

Lot Description

LOT DESCRIPTION:

 

OVERVIEW:

These two blokes named FATS HOLLA and SKINNY GERVANTI worked in the vineyards. With weeding, vine training, pruning and picking, over the years they got to know those vines like friends and understood when a vine’s fruit was just right for picking.

We don’t know whether Fats or Skinny made this wine but enough to know that he couldn’t resist the delightful fruit flavours of the Viognier, Vermentino and the Chardonnay, so he put them together in this blend.

It’s the sort of wine Fats & Skinny would enjoy while sitting around on a hot Sunday afternoon with mates and their sheilas.

ABOUT:

 

FAT’N SKINNY BY HASTWELL & LIGHTFOOT WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE LATE 1990’S IN RESPONSE TO DEMAND FOR A BLENDED WINE FROM McLAREN VALE IN THE UK. THE AIM OF BLENDING WINE IS TO MAKE A WINE THAT IS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF IT PARTS. SOME GRAPE VARIETIES SHARE GREAT SYNERGY. BLENDED WINE PRODUCE A WINE OF GREATER BALANCE AND COMPLEXITY. WHEN WE BLEND WINES WE AIM TO MAKE IT DRINKABLE STRAIGHT AWAY AND INTO THE FUTURE.

 

WITH CASES AT $60 YOU ARE SAVING 75% FROM THE RRP. YOU WOULD BE CRAZY NOT TO PICK THIS WINE UP POP IT INTO THE FRIDGE AND GET STUCK INTO IT THIS MAD MARCH.

 

“THIS WINE HAS REALLY SUPPRISED ME AND SHOWS THAT THINGS DO GET BETTER WITH AGE. IF THERE IS ANY LEFT AT THE END OF MARCH 2020 I’LL BE TAKING THEM BACK TO THE CELLAR DOOR AND PUTTING A $25 PRICE TAG ON IT CAUSE ITS THAT GOOD - KISHAN SIDHU | PARTNER AND GENERAL MANAGER H&L”
