Fiano 2019, Coriole

£16.05 per bottle

About this wine

Coriole’s 2019 Fiano is rich, complex and a 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 and lemon curd. The palate is beautifully balanced with great natural acidity, a soft, creamy texture and an array of citrus and stone fruit characters. This variety loves McLaren Vale’s warm Mediterranean climate which encourages wines of aromatic intensity and textural generosity.  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.

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 the climate, Fiano is now the largest growing whites category in McLaren Vale.

A classically proportioned varietal it has a honeyed apricot, generously-textured palate with good minerality and freshness. The good news is that it is making something of a comeback internationally, especially in Australia where plantings have appeared in Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek."
