Coriole Fiano 6pk 2017
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 Fiano 2017
Intense citrus, slate, almond and honeydew flavours make for a white wine with a bit of kick. You can almost hear it stamping its feet. There’s a brine-like character through the finish, especially after it’s been given time to breathe. This is another excellent release under this label.
