Fiano, another Italian variety to be pioneered by Mark Lloyd of Coriole, with the very first commercial Australian release of this grape produced by Coriole back in the 2005 vintage. A rich, complex and full example of this great variety. The intriguing nose keeps you going back for further exploration; white nectarine, butter poached fruit, baked apple, fresh cut hay, rosehip & papaya to name a few. The palate is beautifully balanced with great natural acidity, a soft, creamy texture and an array of citrus characters. This variety loves McLaren Vale’s warm, Mediterranean climate which encourages wines of aromatic intensity and textural generosity. Ideally, you would get a couple of cases of this wine and enjoy the layers that unfold.
Serving Suggestion: This is an incredibly versatile white wine variety, to be enjoyed with delicate dishes, as well as standing up to heartier food pairings. A whole baked snapper with Asian flavours or pork belly baked over apples with ginger, star anise and served with grilled fennel. Crisp and fresh in its youth, but 6-12 months in bottle will see the texture start to shine.
