Bright aromas of white peach, pear, passion fruit flower and honeysuckle. A mouth-flling palate of honeydew melon, and ripe citrus, namely mandarin. This release of Fiano is fresh and youthful, textural and mouth-watering. Put simply, it’s really delicious.

The grape variety Fiano originates from a province near Campania, east of Naples. Fiano was selected by Coriole when looking for a new southern Italian variety to grow in McLaren Vale, with the frst vineyard planted in 2001. The frst Australian Fiano was released by Coriole from the 2005 vintage.
Our oldest Fiano vineyard turned 15 this year, and we decided to machine harvest some of our crop in order to get just that litle bit more skin to juice contact prior to pressing. 15% of this vintage is barrel fermented in older French Hogsheads. Crisp and fresh in its youth, but 6-12 months in botle will see the texture start to shine.
