Winery Details

    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 Songbird Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    The fruit profile sits at the warmer and riper end of the spectrum, some of both the
    freshness and varietal character being burnt off in the process, but it remains juicy and the proportions are generous. Made to be consumed young but it has the ingredients to mature into the medium term as a minimum.

    Coriole Songbird Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Lovely spot to visit, is Coriole, and this is named for the songbirds that apparently lurk around the cellar door.

    Honeycomb on toast, red and black berries, aniseed and cedar. Medium bodied, a bit juicy, a bit savoury, a bet each way that pays dividends, you might say. Tannin is grainy and the acidity is pretty fresh, though fairly well settled. Goes all right.
