2018 Fiano

2018 Fiano
2018 Fiano

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 first vineyard planted in 2001. The first Australian Fiano was released by Coriole from the 2005 vintage.

Perfectly suited to our climate, Fiano is now the largest growing whites category in McLaren Vale.

“Has fresh fruit on the nose, with lemon, a hint of pineapple and suggestions of complexity from grape soils in the fermentation. There’s an intriguing sweet/savoury interplay in the flavours and the length is excellent. 95 points"
Gourmet Traveller

“So pure and fine, yet textural and gently chalky too. Lemon verbena, fresh apple, white peach, dried herb. It grips on the finish, and offers a wonderful drinking experience from start to finish. Well, it’s probably 93 points, but feel like adding one because it’s just so jolly nice. 94 points”

Tasting Notes
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.

Winemaker Notes
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.
