Oliver’s Taranga Fiano 2016

olivers-t-fiano16There is more and more Australian Fiano wines becoming available and this is one of the wines you should try if you are new to the grape or new to Oliver’s Taranga label. This Italian grape has certainly captured Australia’s imagination and heart. Corrina Wright is not only well respected and loved for her contribution to the Australian Wine Industry but also for her role in keeping the innovative spirit alive at the family winery. She does all this whilst paying homage to the rich McLaren Vale history of the family’s wine heritage.

While this Fiano is unadorned with additional artifice, using indigenous yeasts, natural acid and no oak, it has developed a spicy, nutty nuance to its zippy citrus and crisp white peach nature. Silky, long and conversational. This is an excellent choice for food or sharing with friends, if you want to. Fish pie topped with crispy herbed breadcrumbs anyone?
