    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 Mary Kathleen Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2013

    Gee, I like that, in what you might call the ‘modern era of Coriole’, they are unafraid of having a serious amount of nutritious tannin in their wines.

    This smells good. Oak is in the background and adds a little nutmeg and spice over the core of black and purple fruit. There’s something of a violet perfume too, and a suggestion of black tea and clean earthiness. Full bodied, thick with ferrous tannin, sweet tobacco and deep black fruits, well settled acidity and a long ruggedly tannic finish. Such pleasure here, even as a young wine. They’ve built this to last, and they’ve built it well. Superb Cabernet of resonance and impact.

    Coriole Mary Kathleen Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2013

    Deep red colour with a tinge of purple on the rim. The bouquet is savoury, earthy, oaky and barrel-influenced - not fruity. The wine is very full-bodied and indeed, quite massive. The tannins are commensurately abundant and firm. They coat the whole interior of the mouth. A very big, solid wine, not really cabernet-varietal, but generously proportioned and worthwhile cellaring.
