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.

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.

Lovable Rogue Fiano 2021

 

If you ever get the chance to wander about the Hunter Valley, you need to dine at Bistro Molines (note I underlined 'you need to'). One of the most glorious vistas in the valley will greet you. Carillion Wines are on the same site and have crafted this skinsy Fiano for your pleasure.

Varney Wines Expressions of Interest Riesling Fiano 2021

 


A journey through the textural pleasure zone. Nicknamed the Ginger Sherbet Skinsy Thing pretty much sums up where things are at. A 60/40 blend, the Riesling was fermented on skins with Fiano.

Varney Wines Fiano 2019

 


All the elements of an interesting Fiano are laid out but the acid didn't want to come to the party.

Dodgy Bros Juxtaposed Fiano 2020

 

A little cloudy - just the way Wes Pearson likes it. A textural rollercoaster ride to your happy place. It ducks and weaves while you sway and swerve. Yum!

Unsung Hero Fiano 2020


This starts out all casual before doing up the top button, slipping on a tie and jacket before striding out with suave appeal.
