Small Batch Wines | 2013 Fiano
Good Food, Chris Shanahan, 90 points, August 2013
Put this spritely white in your notebook for spring. Winemaker Corrina Wright, a sixth generation Oliver, of Taranga, McLaren Vale, mixes Italian and Spanish varieties in the family’s extensive plantings of more traditional cultivars. Wright’s fiano, an Italian white variety, is bracingly acidic but also richly textured, with a sweet kiss of residual grape sugar offsetting the high acid. Wright says the very low pH of two needed a little sugar coating. It’s something different and exhilarating for the coming summer.
