Long considered one of the leading producers of McLaren Vale, Coriole was founded by the Lloyd family in 1967 who pioneered the planting of many Italian and French varieties. Long before it was fashionable Mark Lloyd developed vineyards of Sangiovese, Picpoul, Chenin Blanc and Nero d’Avola. Coriole’s Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from estate vineyards that are approximately 30-40 years old. Soils are terra rossa – red, brown earth over limestone, which have proven to be ideal for growing cabernet in McLaren Vale. 
Matured for 18 months in French oak. Magnificent inky black colour with a very deep black dark red hue. Elevated red to black currant and mulberry aromas meld into a vanillin cedar, tobacco and spicy bay leaf back drop. Rich red to black currant and mulberry fruits drive the medium to full bodied palate with some vanillin cedar, tobacco, earth and bay leaf characters scattered across the back half. A sturdy yet fine grained tannin structure shows excellent integration. Concludes long and generous yet refined.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 14.4%
