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"
“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”
