Small Batch Wines  |  2010 Fiano

Ben Thomas, Decanter Magazine, November 2010, 4/5 stars

Fiano hails from the Campania region in southern Italy but has a bright future in Australia. The warm climate of McLaren Vale on the coast just south of Adelaide seems to suit the grape really well. Exotic aromas of pear, nectarine, red apple and tangerine lure you in before similar flavours lead in to a smooth texture and mouth-watering, yet balanced, acid. It also has a lengthy, refreshing ginger and nectarine finish. It’s easy drinking, yet a serious wine.
