Oliver's Taranga Fiano

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Fiano continues to impress when grown in temperate to warm regions, reflecting its birthplace in southern Italy. The lemon zest aromas gain intensity on the long, highly focused palate.

Spicy, floral scents of citrus, cinnamon and honeysuckle with undertones of nuts and white pepper precede a long, smooth and juicy palate packed with tangy, mouthfilling flavour. With a fine dusty, chalky backbone, it finishes with elegance, fresh acids and a hint of mineral.

This smells savoury, with pear skin and lemon citrus on the nose, some melon peel and yeasty notes too. The palate delivers juicy phenolic texture, with bitter almond and melon flavours. Dry, chalky finish - needs food to tame it.

A savoury and airy nose to start with in this small-batch Italian varietal; there's melon rind, pears and chalky dried-flower smells too. The palate's svelte and crisp, delivering a bolt of juicy nashi-pear flavour, with some gentle almond milk adding savoury complexity through the finish.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Has less textural baggage than the Coriole, which makes it more fragrant and lighter on its feet even though it has a little more alcohol. Here some citrus pith/zest is a definite marker, although time will tell whether this is a lasting guide.
