Coriole Fiano 2014 (McLaren Vale, SA)
It’s getting to the point now where Coriole’s Fiano is not just a token pitch at bringing a slice of Campania to McLaren Vale, but rather a solid regional expression in itself. ‘This is how McLaren Vale Fiano tastes’.
This 2014 iteration is a cracker too. It’s so varietal and crunchy and firm, complete with surprising florals, chalky acidity and lemon pith. It’s perhaps a little hard and just a little simple, but the long and flavoursome palate is ultimately convincing, particularly with something fishy to match with it (green fish curry would be a winner).
It’s a yes from me.
