About Coriole Wine
Coriole was started in the 1960s. It is a beautiful spot looking south towards many McLaren Vale vineyards, the old Willunga Range and the Fleurieu Bight. The estate has a lot of Shiraz vines, the oldest planted in 1919. There is also their first Sangiovese vineyard planted in 1985 as well as the first Fiano vineyard (2001), both the oldest of their kind in Australia.
Vines were first planted in the McLaren Vale region in 1838. The McLaren Vale wine companies have formed a close and supportive community that work on cooperative wine and marketing projects together to make the region what it is today.
Hugh and Molly Lloyd founded Coriole in 1969, an estate that began as 12 acres under vines with the original Shiraz vineyard planted immediately after the first world war in 1919. McLaren Vale has a long history as a wine district and vines were first planted at the Coriole site as far back as 1873. The Lloyd family continues to manage and develop the Coriole estate.
Abundant with aromas of mascerated raspberry, cherry cola, strawberry icecream and an array of floral and bramble notes. The palate is medium bodied with pure fruit flavours and a touch of forest floor. A wonderfully easy drinking wine with intensity of flavour, a velvety, round palate, fine, supple tannins and a delicate, lingering finish.
Coriole Dancing Fig
The nose is deliciously aromatic with raspberry, lifted orals, white pepper and exotic spice, with a hint of strawberries and cream, toasted nuts and honey. The medium to light palate is full of plump fruit, Satsuma plum and cranberry. It has ne lingering tannins, mouth watering acidity and a wonderful, long nish. An approachable wine that you’ll struggle to put down.
Coriole Shiraz Fiano
This is Coriole’s second release of a Shiraz Fiano co-ferment. The Shiraz comes from our contour block, planted in 1967, which typically shows spicy, fragrant notes. We accentuate this further with the addition of some Fiano skins into the ferment. The result is a lively and lush shiraz that is medium plus in body with lots of soft tannin to balance the fruit.
