Coriole Redstone Shiraz 6pk 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 Redstone Shiraz 2019
A meld of Blewitt fruit, with grapes from both Coriole and the warmer Willunga flats. A sassy shiraz, exceptional for the price, boasting red cherry scents, black plum, anise and clove. The tannins and acidity, a bit cagey, but the whole works far better than the sum of its parts.
Rating: 90 Points, Special Value
