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.

    Coriole Estate Shiraz 2018

    This has an elegant touch rather than the heave-ho of so much in the region. Kudos! Fermented in open-top vessels and hand plunged before transfer to French hogsheads, the result feels more medium of density than full. The aromas more floral and succulent, than jam. Think violet scents and an effortless waft of dark cherry, iodine, anise, olive and assorted spice. A lovely flow to this.

    Coriole Estate Shiraz 2018

    Our new puppy is arriving tomorrow, and his name is Lloyd. Or L Loyd is I like to say (as in luh loyd, phonetically).

    Blackberry and blueberry, dark chocolate and hazelnuts, some spice and tar. It’s full-bodied, dense and flavoursome, packed silty tannin, a savoury ferrous kind of thing happening, even acidity, and a bright almost brambly finish. It’s a good release. Age-worthiness is assured.
