THE YEAR THAT
A vigourous kangaroo buck fight took out two whole vines.

Prepare your palate for a textural journey with this Fiano. One minute it’s all pine nuts and cashew, the next it’s kaffir lime and fresh basil with a touch of the tropics. Drink with anything spicy, or just to spice up your life!

AROMA
Gin and lime notes, cashew nut, triple cream cheese, savoury tropical and wet stone.
PALATE
Bright and zesty, cut lime continues on the palate which has a super creamy and nutty texture. Very varietal and delicious.
WINE & VINTAGE

Fiano is relatively new variety to Australia, and originates from the Campania region of Italy. Fiano is super heat and drought tolerant, being able to maintain acidity in the grapes even in our hot South Australian Summers. This minimal intervention Fiano is made with indigenous yeast, has no added acid and 2020 sees the first inclusion of a tiny portion fermented in old french oak.

HISTORY

With 100 ha of premium grapevines on the Taranga property, the Oliver family has over 50 blocks representing different grape varieties, clones, soil types & vine ages.

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2021 Vintage
James Halliday Wine Companion 2018 edition

Bright welcoming straw-green; the bouquet has the wild flower/bush/pine aromas
seen in other Australian fianos, the palate following suit with a strong, racy structure
embracing both savoury and fruity nuances - I’ll buy Olivers’ suggestion of kaffir lime. A
mouthfilling wine with attitude and natural acidity.
