Comyns & Co. Fiano 2016

We have a live one here! The contents of the glass just kept evaporating all too quickly. This is a mighty Fiano from Scott Comyns - his new solo venture.

Sourced from Singleton and having spent two days on skins, Comyns says his approach to this variety is as simple as, "What I do with Semillon I do the opposite with Fiano." He goes on to say cloudy juice and aromatic yeast is used before fermenting dry.

Expressive aromas here hit the mark. White and yellow flowers with a citrusy vibe humming a sexy tune. In the mouth some poached pear barely peers through as does a hint of musk. That musk just had me captivated keeping a low profile but enough to demand attention. There's some weight and texture from the skins delivering a generous and super moreish wine. Take a bow Scotty!

I'd happily share a bottle but that wouldn't be enough.

Drink now, why not?

92/100 - Very good.
