Small Batch Wines  |  2010 Fiano

Mike Bennie, Delicious Magazine, Feb 2011

Down in McLaren Vale, Corrina Wright steers the hip at Oliver's Taranga and her decision to try alternative varieties has been met with great success. Fiano is a white grape native to the south of Italy is now finding a home in Corrina's vineyards. The Oliver's Taranga Fiano 2010 ($24) is perky, showing nectarine, green apple acidity and a hint of ginger. It's lean but decidedly McLaren Vale in its vibrant fruit flavour.
