Upcoming Offering – Scott Wines Fiano 2011

Fiano is a relatively unknown white grape outside its home of in Southern Italy.  However, its thick skin and small berries make it an ideal candidate for high quality winemaking in the Adelaide Hills.  The aromas show medium intensity with notes of honey, hazelnut, cloves and lemons.  The palate is full bodied with waxy intensity and a long crisp finish.  This is a well made, unoaked style with excellent length and some potential to age.  The Scott Fiano recently took a trophy at the Adelaide show for good reason!  Drink now to 2016. 4 ½ stars.
