Ratings
Young Gun of Wine Fiano Deep Dive Tasting - Artwine Wicked Stepmother 2021 was rated TOP Australian FIANO - we have the most awarded fiano in Australia since 2012. This was Maisano’s top wine, it polled one spot back for two tasters and appeared in the top-six lists for two others. “Honeysuckle, juicy white nectarine, tangerine peel, fresh sage, glacé lemon and pink grapefruit,” wrote Maisano. “This wine dances on the palate with citrus and almond kernel flavours. Unctuously polished and refreshing with a plethora of aromas lingering on the finish. Couldn’t put it down.” Szyman described it as “The summer holiday I didn’t get this year. The nose gives generously with a tropical flair, lychee and pineapple and honeysuckle blossoms. The palate has a refreshing mineral quality, with sumptuous fruit weight that finishes drily.” Scarcebrook praised the “very classic fruit profile, some citrus and apple notes, a hint of under-ripe nectarine, a bit of crunch but for a fresh style it is offering plenty.” Trembath described it as an “appetising wine in an aperitif style – crisp and mouth-watering. Beautifully made, well-balanced and has a lot of flavour and dimension.” “Herbaceous and zesty with a distinctly aromatic nose somewhat reminiscent of sauvignon blanc,” wrote Nadeson. “However, the wine still shows sweet lemon brined olives and touches of honey, which would lead you down the fiano path. Excellent length and an undeniable balance of flavour.”
