Winery Details

    The next Generation of the Lloyd family (Coriole) planting their flag in the Vale. A new project from brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd, Dune wines sees them step out from the shadow of Coriole wines. Sourcing fruit from a single vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of Mclaren Vale. Organic in conversion, this sandy vineyard has been completely re-imagined since being purchased by the brothers in 2009. Planting and grafting over southern Mediterranean varietals has seen them create a unique range of blends alongside some classic and so2 free shiraz.

Press Review

    Dune Bonaire Rosé 2020
    An intensely flavoured and remarkably savoury rosé. Onion skin/copper hue. Delicious, attesting to how exciting a rosé can be. A sort of only-in-Australia giddy blend in which carignan imparts a briary thread of tannin, sangiovese some frisk and workhorse shiraz is the filler. Orange zest, tamarind, rose water and sapid cherry scents reverberate on the palate. Towed long by a skein of mouthwatering acidity.

    Dune Bonaire Rosé 2020
    Here we have carignan and shiraz contributing to a rose wine. Single vineyard, Blewitt Springs, oak and steel for its pre-bottle lifespan. Small batch stuff with an eye on minimal intervention. Buy into the legacy, stay for the refreshment factor.

    Pale, watermelon juice colour, that inviting sheen that says summer and crisp and refreshing. Delicate scents of rose petal, strawberry, faint spice. Mouthwatering immediately, fine chalky-crunchy texture, pretty with sweetness of red berry fruits that segues to a cool, fine, dry finish. Nothing over or underdone, just so, pitch perfect warm weather rose, with a bit of extra interest in its make up. Could guzzle all day long.
