Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz is sourced from low yielding estate grown, 80 year old vines. The wine is fermented in old open fermenters and hand plunged, breaking the cap. It is then pressed into both new and old French and American oak barriques and hogsheads where it is matured for 15 months.

A magnificent wine, tightly structured and needing considerable cellaring to fully integrate. Totally opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla and spice followed by liquorice end notes. The palate has a monumental structure. Mouthfilling with a great deal of ripe fruit worked over a firm tannin backbone. Flavours of spice, blackberry, plum and black pepper are juxtaposed by a firmish tannin grip. This is not the sort of wine one comes across often, as most reds these days seem to be destined for the table much sooner than later.
