Coriole Fiano 2013 (McLaren Vale, SA)
13%, Screwcap, $25
What marks this as different is the fleshiness, that trademarkhis lemongrass nose fleshed out with more pineapple juice than I’ve seen previously, the palate fuller and more luscious than previously backed by tart acidity. That fullness through the middle makes this commercially attractive, though curiously I didn’t love drinking this.
A worthy example of the style but not my favourite Coriole Fiano.
Score: 16.8/20, 89/100
Would I buy it? Not quite.
