Coriole Fiano 2021
The grape variety Fiano originates from a province near Campania, east of Naples.
Fiano was selected by Coriole when looking for a new southern Italian variety to grow in McLaren Vale, with the first vineyard planted in 2001.
The first Australian Fiano was released by Coriole from the 2005 vintage.
Perfectly suited to our climate, Fiano is now the largest growing whites category in McLaren Vale.
A rich , complex and full example of this great variety.
The intruiging nose keeps you going back for further exploration; white nectarine, butter poached fruit, baked aple, fresh cut hay, rosehip & papaya to name a few.
The palate is beautifully balanced with great natural acidity, a soft, creamy texture and an array of citrus characters.
We’re deliberately going for a more textrual style and this variety loves McLaren Vale’s warm, Mediterannean climate which encourages wines of aromatic intensity and textural generosity.
Ideally, you would get a couple of cases of this wine and enjoy the layers that unfold.
This is an incredibly versatile white wine variety, to be enjoyed with delicate dishes, as well as standing up to heartier food pairings.
