Fiano 2018, Coriole

£15.95 per bottle

About this wine

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.

    string(479) "A variety on the verge of extinction until mid-way through the 20th century, Fiano is grown widely in Italy’s Campania region, specifically around the village of Avellino. 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."
