The Coriole McLaren Vale Fiano is a rich, complex and full-bodied example of this great variety. The vibrant nose keeps you going back for further exploration; nectarine, pear, fresh citrus, shaved fennel and orange blossom. The palate is beautifully balanced with great natural acidity and a soft, creamy texture. The wine shows red apple, tangerine, quince, fresh ginger and white pepper. Fiano is a more textural style and this variety loves McLaren Vale’s warm, Mediterranean climate which encourages wines of aromatic intensity and textural generosity. Delicious with a whole baked snapper with Asian flavours or pork belly baked over apples with ginger, star anise and served with grilled fennel.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"The aromas – fermentative, talcy, and salty – segue to a well-positioned and complex palate of both viscosity and freshness. Apricot and dried straw emerges with a swirl. Moving toward what great Fiano can be: mid weighted (could be fuller), chewy, pungent, stone-fruited and vibrant." (On the 2020 vintage.)

Some of the grapes were machine harvested, resulting in more skin to juice contact prior to pressing. 25% of this vintage was barrel fermented in older French hogsheads
Crisp and fresh in its youth, but 6-12 months in bottle will see the texture start to shine
The Lloyd family founded Coriole in 1967, and are considered pioneers in the McLaren Vale region, and visionaries in the planting of Italian and French varieties. Long before it was fashionable, Mark Lloyd developed vineyards of Sangiovese, Picpoul, Chenin Blanc, Nero d’Avola, and others, plus of course, Shiraz. They are considered one of the leading lights of the region.
