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 Pyla Red Blend 2021
    Nero, carignan, mourvèdre and negroamaro, with dollops of montepulciano and grenache. Hand picked with abundant whole-berry pulp and sass. Portentous blend. Great varieties all, obfuscated to date by the country’s effete fascination with French stuff. No cultural cringe here! Blueberry, rosemary, thyme, anise, clove, raspberry, lilac and a ferruginous burr across the back end. Alive. Fresh. Lovely tannins for this imminently drinkable style! Nothing soupy or insipid. Delicious!

    Dune Pyla Red Blend 2021
    A blend of heaps of stuff that fits the Mediterranean bill. You know the drill. Co-fermented too. Joyous stuff, sloshes around with dark berries, woody spice, clove, salted liquorice. Feels good, is good, a lush mouthful of easy going, nice and soft red wine but with a bit of extra depth, perhaps. Kind of warming, is soft, generous but also fresh feel. It’s kinda got lots going on but the gist is a wine that makes for an easy going, gluggable red of straight up pleasure.
