The Wine Front 94
McLaren Vale

2023 Coriole Fiano

6 x 750ml
It’s a more delicate iteration of this wine, though it does not lack flavour. It’s fine and tight, apple, preserved lemon, aniseed and green herbs, a little briny too, with some almond flavour, fine chalky texture, and a long finish of excellent purity. What a cracker. 94 points" Gary Walsh, Winefront Read more

Tasting Notes

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.
