Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz 6pk 2015
Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz - Langton's 'Excellent' Classification (VII 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 Lloyd Reserve Shiraz 2015
The swagger and the silk. This marries an exaggerated volume of inky, berried flavour with the surest, softest touch, the end result guaranteed to both seduce and satisfy. This is shiraz to the power of ten, and yet for all its sweetness and wealth it never really feels overdone. Such is class.
