Finona 2021 Rose
Did you know a group of penguins in the water is called a raft, and on land it's called a waddle? Cute huh. Anyway, say hello to this special collab between Fin and Winona; FINONA! A frisky fusion of Savagnin, Pinot Noir & Cab Sauv that delivers everything you want in a pink penguin. Or pengwine. Turkish delight, meyer lemon, strawberries, white chocolate, goji berry, watermelon, cherry ... picture all these steeped in melting soft serve ice cream. Yep. That's Finona.
It's the very first wine out of the Finyard, on Wurundjeri Land, thoughtfully and sustainably grown without herbicides, chemical fertilisers and pesticides. Hand picked, wild fermented, co-fermented as whole bunches with a couple foot pressings, pressed to old oak. Waddle into Spring with this feathery friend in your fridge and you'll be pengwinning. The screenprinted bottle is a keeper, too.
$2 from every bottle sold will go to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, where 'Operation Little Penguin' helps to protect Manly's endangered Fairy Penguin colony – the last mainland breeding colony in NSW. Drink well, do well.
