The wines of Coriole have become benchmarks in McLaren Vale, reflecting the consistency of quality that the district is capable of delivering.
The original Coriole vineyard dates back to 1919, which the Lloyd family secured when they purchased the property in 1967. Further planting took place in the 1960's and 1990's with the main variety planted being Shiraz. The McLaren Vale terroir is influenced by the maritime climate, with windy, cool winters followed by warm to hot, dry summers which facilitated the production of wines of a consistently high standard. Many McLaren Vale winemakers consider the district the best place in the world to grow grapes.
Winemaker Mark Lloyd and Grant Harrison use traditional winemaking techniques with fermentation taking place in open tanks, with hand plunging and pump overs of must. Oak maturation is usually for 1 year, with 25%-35% of the wine being kept in new American and French oak.
An outstanding Shiraz from Coriole.
Opaque black crimson colour with black purple hue. Delightful, perfumed nose of blackberry, vanilla, violets and spice. The palate flavours are especially impressive - long white and black pepper flavours are overlaid with spice, liquorice and blackberry. Perfect balance. Long aftertaste of plum and blackberry. Cellar: 3-4 years (2009-2010) Alc/Vol: 14.5%
Strong, deep red-purple; rich, dark plum, blackberry, bitter chocolate and spice; oak well-handled; brighter than most on the finish.
