Coriole Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 6pk 2018
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.
Coriole Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
I like cabernet from the Vale. I really do. Despite the inherent generosity and warmth, there remains a transparent connection to varietal personality that too often, warmer regions and their morass of flavour, tend to obfuscate. This exudes cassis, dried sage, spearmint and bitter chocolate notes, rounded up by a plume of savoury tannins, pliant and moreish.
