2017 La Prova Fiano

Adelaide Hills, SA

Fiano with a little barrel work done to a tee.


This is an increase in the textural component than most years and I like the evolution.

About the Wine

Yet another impressive Fiano here, great variety for SA.

Winemaker Sam Scott has got a great nose for a good vineyard. When he came across Caj and Genny Amadio's vineyard in Kersbrook, his spidey-senses were tingling. "It is a great site for the southern Italian varieties where the warm to hot days are tempered by the cooler nights." offers Sam.

This year's Fiano was crushed before fermenting to extract maximum juice then left on, what Sam refers to as "fluffy lees". 40% of the wine was fermented in old French oak, adding, "an increase in the textural component than most years and I like the evolution." 

Gary Walsh once noted that in his opinion Sam made one of the best Fianos in the country, the 2017 will do nothing to change that view. On the 2017 rendition James Halliday says, "Scott nails it again" in his 95 point score.

This is spot on.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Excellent wine. So much perfume, fruit flavour and all-round character. Florals, almonds, citrus juice and blossoms, grapefruit. It smells fantastic and tastes likewise. The juices run free." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Scott nails it again: precision and power, texture and acidity. Lemon pith and zest draw out the saliva, lengthening the palate as they do so, then you find yet more flavour, like the good part of durian. It's a full-fledged assault on the senses. Fiano at its most convincing." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
