- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Stelvin
The Lloyd family founded Coriole in 1967, and are considered pioneers in the McLaren Vale region, and visionaries in the planting of Italian and French varieties long before it was fashionable. Despite this Shiraz has been Coriole’s principle variety and flagship wine since the first bottling in 1970. This wine is 100% Estate grown and the average vine age is 50 years old with maturation taking place in French oak hogsheads.
Impenetrable pitch black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Elevated liquorice, blackberry and ripe red plum aromas rise from the glass followed by vanillin cedar and pepper. Rich blackberry, liquorice and red plum flavours cascade across the palate with an undercard of vanillin cedar, subtle earthy graphite elements and blackpepper. Despite the fleshy textural feel and velvet like tannins there’s a sturdy underbelly to the wine. Excellent length with a long peppery blackberry, liquorice, ripe red plum, vanillin cedar, subtle graphite and spice aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Most of the estate shiraz vines are now 50yo; some 100yo vines were also employed. This is a silken release, fresh as daisy too, with plum, cassis and redcurrant flavours lifted by notes of violet. A gentle creaminess to the texture doesn't hurt a jot. When you reach for a bottle of McLaren Vale shiraz you're hoping it tastes like this, and as good. Drink by 2032.

I’m not sure if all the Shiraz grapes in this wine come from Seaview, though I suspect they do. It’s one of the best parts of the Vales for growing Shiraz grapes, in my limited opinion.
Liquorice bullets, blackberry, earthiness, gentle cedar oak. Full-bodied, firm acidity and fleshy tannin with red and black fruit, maybe something like boysenberry, typical regional ferrous stuff, and a royal roll of silty tannin on a long finish. Nicely done. There will be very few complaints around the table when drinking this wine, I should imagine. Drink 2019-2030+
