On the second day of Christmas my wine rack gave to me an Olivier’s Taranga Fiano

Day 2 in the advent wine calendar and this calls for a bit of Friday fun, a Friday Fun Fiano


Hello Friday Fun Fiano!


This here is Olivier’s Taranga 2016 Fiano



I tasted this wine at the Flemington grazing trail a couple of years ago and it was love at first Fiano.

An Italian variety, this type is not a widely common one here in Australia, although it is gaining momentum. Hailing from McLaren Vale in South Australia, the Fiano is a really crisp and refreshing wine. Slightly floral with notes of pear and zest makes this wine for one fun Friday drink. A great alternative to the Pinot Grigio you may usually sip on for your Friday’s.

“Pears and nutty aromas, almost like cashew, some honey and white peach skin. More time reveals some citrus flower and leaf. In the mouth and poached pears drive the bus followed by a subdued ginger and cinnamon like spice. Flavours are long and mouth filling – some delicious textural interest. I’d happily have a couple of glasses.” http://www.oliverstaranga.com

Until next time winos
