Quick Overview

"I’d be giving this another six months or more to settle into bottle before drinking. Opens up with a banana/floral ester character, but given a good dose of air, it settles into something more at ease with itself. Honeydew, almonds and flowers, a little dried herb perhaps. It’s a finer boned iteration, it feels, with cool acidity, nashi pear and lemon barley, a dusty/chalky texture, and a crunchy green apple and fennel laced finish of fair length. Good potential here, but not quite ready to go as yet."

Product Description

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
