Fiano is a grape variety indigenous to Southern Italy, and as such, is well suited to the cooler maritime climate of Langhorne Creek.
It has a aromas of pear, orange blossom, honey and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is rich with paw, paw, citrus and spice and just enough natural acidity to give a clean, almost mineral like, savoury finish.
The Sicilian Defence is the most popular aggressive defence and immediately stakes claim at the centre, denying white the double pawns on e4 and d4.´_

Given that Fiano hails from a region that is coastal bound, it makes sense it is a wine that works well with seafood – baked fish, shellfish, etc. It’s perfect with vegetarian pasta dishes, too, as the acidity in the wine offsets the richness of cream-based sauces and complements the acidity of tomato-based recipes
This wine is enjoyable now, but has the structure and varietal pedigree to evolve beautifully over the next 3 to 5 years.
