“A Fiano of the highest quality! Superb!” Haydn Deane via Facebook

@vinesanddesigns Fiano from @oliverstaranga in McLaren Vale. Lovely complexity with floral notes, lanolin, citrus, green fruit and stone fruit.

2020 Fiano : Airbag pressed with zero adds; pressings blended back in with the free-run juice. Fermented with wild yeast, then stirred. I have followed the evolution of this cuvée from its nascent days to now. It has evolved for the better. Such promise in these hands and in the region at large! Lanolin, apricot pith, pear granita, lemon curd, ginger spice, raw almond and tatami mat notes, all. Exuberant fruit held in check by a crunchy quinine linger. Just a bit tangy.

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.
