No #1 2022 Fiano in Australia HUON HOOKE
The Freemans reckon fiano is a grape ideally suited to their Hilltops region and from what I’ve tasted I’d have to agree.
The colour is very light yellow and there’s a spicy, tropical flower bouquet, hinting at frangipani, lychee, honey and dried mango. The wine has intensity and richness on the palate, good weight and length, a subtle suggestion of oak—but if so, it’s been sensitively used. Medium-full bodied, very long and pleasantly drying at the finish. An excellent food wine. (Screwcap)
