Winery Details

    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, Mark Lloyd developed vineyards of Sangiovese, Picpoul, Chenin Blanc, Nero d’Avola, and others, plus of course, Shiraz. They are considered one of the leading lights of the region.

Press Review

    Coriole Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Strength of purpose, strength of character. Cabernet flexes its muscle here. It’s brimful of blackcurrant, peppercorn and bay leaf-like flavour, but it’s the combination of strong, ripe fruit and the tumbling surf of tannin that really makes you sit up and take notice.

    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.
