Coriole Piquepoul 12pk 2019
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 Piquepoul 2019
A pleasant surprise to find this quintessentially southern French, seafood accompaniment, here. Translated literally as ‘lip stinger', this is equipped with an arsenal of acidity to enhance anything saline. Think oysters and ceviche. Otherwise, cool fermentation aromas, citrus hints, spa salts and talc.
