Oliver’s Taranga Fiano 2022


This is the scent of spring, of apple blossom, citrus and just a hint of the fruit power to come. It is fragrant and enticing. Settles into something quite serious on the palate with a greater weight and texture immediately apparent. There’s a steeliness, too. The 2022 vintage was a stunner across much of South Australia providing the background to this delightful fiano, which combines fruit intensity and structure.

The winemaker, Corrina Wright, knows the grape well and in a top vintage flavours are enriched. Fresh cut Nashi pear, apple and spice with white peach peeping in shows real depth, while a lick of chervil-line herbals frame the edges. A steely acidity binds it all together. Australian fiano keeps going from strength to strength.
