Meridiana Fenici White

The name ‘Fenici’ pays tribute to the Phoenicians who, during the first millennium BC, spread winemaking culture throughout the Mediterranean. The Fenici range is a casual, easy to drink selection of white, rosé, and red wines vinified to yield surprisingly fresh and fruity personalities. Fenici wines derive from Meridiana’s estate and from closely supervised third party properties situated in the vicinity.

The Fenici White was first released in 2007 (vintage 2006).

Tasting Notes

Fenici White has a vibrant, straw-yellow colour; aromas of exotic fruits with floral notes; and a fresh, light, citrus flavour with a lively acidity.

The 2019 vintage was characterized by low temperatures during the budding period which slowed down the entire vegetative cycle. The abundant spring rains produced an excess of vegetation which resulted into a lower production, which was less than average when compared to previous years, but the grapes were of higher quality. The wines have fragrant olfactory notes and also optimal physiological maturity, characteristics that have given a nice balance to all the wines produced during this vintage.

Grape variety: Chardonnay, Vermentino & Viognier of Malta.
