Ox Hardy Upper Tintara Fiano 2023


I was walking around the winery with Ox Hardy earlier this year and we had a taste of this out of the tank. It was quite complex then but it's good to see how blending of various portions has delivered a more balanced wine.

First Ridge Wines Fiano 2022


A very well-made Fiano from Mudgee's First Ridge Wines. It's layered with detail yet there is crowd pleasing appeal due to its easy going nature. Nicely done.

Juxtaposed Fiano 2022


This is quite a lovely drink. From the Lacey Vineyard in McLaren Vale, attractive aromas and the detailed textural appeal make this a delicious Fiano to savour.

Mount Pleasant Fiano 2022


A wonderfully textured white for a cool winter's afternoon. I'm keen on a creamy pasta dish after making friends with this.

Hesketh Regional Selections Fiano 2022


The delicate textural presence of this Clare Valley Fiano is ticking the boxes big time.

Paisley Linen Fiano 2022


Lunchtime wine. The approachability of these Paisley Wines never ceases to impress. This Fiano is sourced from the Adelaide Hills and tosses a blanket of texture across the palate to lure you in.

Oliver's Taranga Fiano 2022


They call Corrina Wright the Queen of Fiano, a fitting title I must say. Here she goes again working her magic with this 2022 release. A brilliant wine awaits. Stand and applaud.

Wynn's Reframed Fiano x Pinot Grigio x Arneis 2021


Here we go! Something fresh and left of centre from Wynn's. It's great to see traditional brands cut loose and offer a cheeky side. This is a self-described "red lovers white".

Montevecchio Bianco Field Blend 2021


The complexity is in the making not the enjoying. A mega field blend, this slides down all too easily. A wine that is a fab go-to for a casual gathering with friends.

Hesketh Fiano 2021


The second release of this Fiano, I'd be curious to watch this wine evolve in coming years given the young age of the vines.

Ballandean Estate Fiano 2021


Fiano is a white variety hitting its straps around Australia. Ballandean Estate has been producing this variety for several years now and each vintage is as appealing and energetic as the previous. This is a great wine and one worth befriending when in search of an alternative to the main white wines seen on the shelf.

Miss Zilm Fiano 2021


I haven't had the pleasure of tasting a Miss Zilm wine previously, but it seems the work of Keeda Zilm has come across the tasting bench previously through her work at O'Leary Walker for 16 years. This Fiano is a beauty. There's a precision here and an abundance of flavour too. Very expressive, it's that friend you could chat to all night. 

Ox Hardy Fiano 2021


A burst of prettiness leaps from the glass. It has that, "Pick me. Pick me!" vibe about it.

Tyrrell's Special Release Fiano 2021


A Fiano that slides down with ease. Splash this in a few glasses and you'll be sure to impress those around you.

Berton Vineyard Winemaker's Reserve Fiano 2021


A tropical-driven Fiano that glides through the mouth, hand me a serve of calamari and chips, please.

Paisley Wines Linen Fiano 2021


If you like your whites with a little interest, perhaps Fiano is worth a look? Another great release from Paisley Wines.

d'Arenberg The Sensorial Surfer Fiano 2021


Part of the growing organic range from d'Arenberg that has been getting a good push of late, this is a shift from the "house" style and it's noticeable. Here we have a delightful Fiano. It just feels and tastes good. That's enough to hook you in, right? 

Dodgy Brothers Juxtaposed Fiano 2021


Lunchtime drinking done well. Find me a sushi platter, please.
