Coriole Vineyards Fiano 2020

The grape variety Fiano originates from the province of Avellino in the Campania region east of Naples. The variety takes its name from the Latin 'vitis apiana', as the grapes were so sweet they proved to be irresistible to bees ('api'). Fiano was selected by Mark Lloyd when looking for a new southern Italian variety to grow in McLaren Vale. The first Australian Fiano was released by Coriole from the 2005 vintage.

Coriole's Mark Lloyd was an early pioneer of Italy's red sangiovese, later moving to other so-called "alternative" varieties, including barbera, nebbiolo, sagrantino and this savoury white of Roman origin. Jancis Robinson says Fiano "provides the latterday incarnation of the wine known as Apianum to the Romans and makes a splendid, very individual dry white in the hills above Avellino" a description that seems apt for this McLaren Vale version. It's crisp, clean and fresh in the Australian style but reveals an Italian touch in its grippy texture and pleasantly tart finish. Chris Shanahan - Canberra Times

Bright aromas of white peach, pear, passion fruit flower and honeysuckle. A mouth-flling palate of honeydew melon, and ripe citrus, namely mandarin. This release of Fiano is fresh and youthful, textural and mouth-watering. Put simply, it’s really delicious.
