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 Sparta Shiraz 12pk 2018
    Named after the original owners' Spartan origins, this is the only Coriole site facing due north. A vivid dark ruby, this is a richer expression and yet still relatively light on its feet. Floral and lifted upon entry. A dense undercurrent of blue to purple fruit allusions, liquorice, tapenade and Cherry Ripe notes, bound by a reductive tension and enhanced by subtle oak handling ride long.

    Coriole Sparta Shiraz 12pk 2018

    A north-facing plot at Coriole, surrounded by olive trees, this has a rich attitude with deep, plum and boysenberry aromas and flavors, delivered amid long, plush and mellow tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
