Med Red Special Sold Out!
But try this special
Friulano, despite being named after an Italian region actually originated in South West France.
DNA analysis has confirmed that Friulano is identical to Sauvignonasse, and is listed as such in Jancis Robinson's monumental tome. But with Sauvignon Blanc and Savagnin competing for attention Friulano needs a distinctive name.
Unfortunately there is also the problem that another of its synonyms, Tocai Friulano, in that it contains two words which violate the rules about geographic naming, a double whammy. Tocai implies that it the wine is from the Hungarian region of that name, and Friuli is a region in North Western Italy.
As Friulano is a rare variety in Australia it is included in the book Rare Ozzies
Med Red offer. Includes two bottles of each of six wines, different producers, different regions, different alternative varieties and blends. Plus a bonus bottle. All at an affordable price.
