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 2019
    One of the classic Shiraz wines of Australia for me. Speaks of place. Cellars well. Not too expensive.
    Ripe, fleshy, plenty of tannin and ironstone, a little aniseed and cedar oak in support, black fruit and cocoa. Full-bodied, maybe some raspberry freshness in with the black fruit, saline, chewy and deep tannin, quite fresh, ferrous with a smattering of fragrant dried herb. Finish is packed with toothsome tannin, and long with it. The chew and earthiness is wonderful. Speaks of place in loud and proud voice.

    Coriole Estate Shiraz 2019

    Largely 50yo plantings. Destemmed, open-top fermented and on skins for a meagre 10 days. 18 months in French oak (25% new). Fine and powdery tannins, reliant on what is clearly high-quality wood and a brief extraction window. It works. Black/blue fruits, a sluice of anise and clove and a whiff of violet. Warm. Generous. Yet these descriptives are at times inane and repetitive. It is the texture that makes any good wine and for an estate bottling, this has a generous fealty to region and winning texture tattooed into its being.
