Coriole is one of McLaren Vale's most eminent, artisanal estates. Consecutive vintages of Coriole Shiraz have claimed a remarkable back to back San Francisco Double Gold. Exclusively estate grown, the majority of vines are some forty years of age. Coriole know from Shiraz, having grown the varietal since 1919 and rating Langtons Classification for the estate flagship Lloyd Reserve. Coriole is sylistically strong, showing exceptional concentration of flavour, elegantly lined by gentle tannins and supported by judicious oak.
Winemaking at Coriole is very traditional and always labour intensive, vinification is carried out in open fermenters, while treated to hand plunging and pumpovers. Shiraz vines are rooted in relatively shallow, generally classic Terra rosa red brown earth over limestone soils. The climate is quite maritime and windy, with cool winters and warm to hot dry summers. Ripening periods continue steadily throughout autumn until the picking. Each vintage is an opportunity to experiment with new techniques and evaluate their role in achieving the evolving Coriole style. Maturation takes place over the course of a year in a combination of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Deep scarlet colour. Nose displays sweet red fruits, raspberry, plum and mulberry with nutmeg and cinnamon. The palate is medium to full bodied with red fruits, dark berry and cigar box, blackberries and plum. A structural wine that's rich and creamy, oak is well integrated, the finish is long with ripe and fine grained, chocolate tannins.

More About Coriole Wines
Siituated in the hills north of the McLaren Vale township in an area known as the Seaview sub region, the Coriole winemaking operation was aquired and re-established by the Lloyd Family during the sixties
Coriole's old house and barn were constructed in about 1860. The slate roof of the old house, and its immense slate slab floors are typical of early houses of the district. Coriole was first owned by an English company, managed by Geoffrey Kay, a distant relative of the the Kays of nearby Amery Winery. Coriole's old shiraz vines were planted in 1919, when the district was experiencing a strong surge in export growth of its burgundy style wines to England and increasing wine sales interstate.
