Angove Alternatus Fiano 2014

From the second the cap came off I knew this would be a tasty little sucker.

Sourced from the Oliver's vineyard from which Corrina Wright (winemaker at Oliver's Taranga) has made a name for herself as the queen of Fiano, this effort from Angove is very handy.

Wade through the stone fruit and tropical aromas to a palate rich with melons and textural appeal. There's a density, almost creamy like, which is enough to capture interest yet not too heavy to deter. Engaging length and nicely balanced overall.

A classic take on the Italian variety. Very good wine and great drinking.
