FATS HOLLA and SKINNY GERVANTI worked in the vineyards. Over the years, with their weeding, vine training, prunning and picking, they got to know those vines like friends and understood when a vine was feeling at its best.
The wine is Fats’ favourite, he is an ace picker and reckons he can taste out in the vineyard what goes best together. This time it’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, then he added a little Chardonnay as touch of magic. The result is a balance of berry flavours and savoury tones with gentle tannis. The perfect wine for one of Fats’ legendary barbeques.
The FAT’n SKINNY range of wine was created in the late 90’s as the H&L produce grew in volumes and in varieties. This label is based on the original Hastwell & Lightfoot label image / logo from the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon. Some say the label represents the physical attributes of the vineyard owners. But really these fat wines at skinny prices provide a blended wine experience that is fun, playfull and not at all meant to be taken that seriously. They are ready to drink and have a range of bold flavours, rare and limited single offer blends, and a product that over delivers given the quality fruit that is typical of South Australia’s McLaren Vale region. Don’t stock one stock the whole range.
