Lalla Rookh Fiano

 

 

Background

Fiano is an ancient Roman grape variety that originates from the Campania wine region, east of Naples in Southern Italy. Fiano was selected by Coriole when looking for a new Mediterranean variety to plant in Australia. The first Australian Fiano vineyard was planted by Coriole in 2001 and the first wine released from the 2005 vintage.

This wine is produced from a vineyard planted in the Adelaide Hills.

Tasting Notes

The nose is floral with lemon zest, grapefruit and dried apricot.

The palate is fresh andlean with brown lime cordial, lemon and lime juice. It displays a soft, round mouth feel and finishes with zingy acidity.

Fiano’s complexity and distinctive texture will help it complement a wide range of dishes, from light fresh seafood in summer, to richer shellfish, poultry and even red meat dishes in the cooler months.
