WINE & VINTAGE

Fiano is relatively new variety to Australia, and originates from the Campania region of Italy. Fiano is super heat and drought tolerant, being able to maintain acidity in the grapes even in our hot South Australian summers. This minimal intervention Fiano
is made with indigenous yeast, has no added acid and is made without the use of oak.

Qwine Reviews

A strong Fiano game played here by Oliver's Taranga. Great to see them back on the dais after a stumble in 2017. Corrina Wright showing her worthy Fiano Queen status.
A delicious and textural ride. Curvaceous with oodles of pleasure showing lime juice and lemon rind mingling happily with licks of canned pear juice. Soft touches of cashews make a welcomed appearance plus fine cinnamon and star anise to close. You'd be forgiven for sitting on a glass for a while - a good wine to evoke thought and discussion. The width and breadth on offer certainly aid that. Great stuff.
Drink now to three years so the freshness can reign supreme.

A tangy and stoney fiano with crushed-stone and apple character. Medium body. Integrated and bright. Drink now. Screw cap.
