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 Shiraz 2016

    Most of the estate shiraz vines are now 50yo; some 100yo vines were also employed. This is a silken release, fresh as a 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.

    Coriole Estate Shiraz 2016

    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.

    Coriole Estate Shiraz 2016

    Deep red/purple colour with a straightforward but appealing plummy, meaty, earthy bouquet; the palate soft and fleshy, round and smooth-textured, with a dominant meaty character but a clean aftertaste. Very good shiraz, to drink young or cellar.
