About

The Mary Kathleen Reserve Cabernet Merlot is one of the trio of Reserve releases from iconic McLaren Vale estate, Coriole. This is compiled of a selection of the best fruit grown across the Coriole vineyard. It's a wonderfully structural wine style, built for the long haul in a cool, dark cellar. While Shiraz and Grenache get the lion's share of kudos in the Vale, there are some wines like this that remind us that there are exceptional Cabernets in the region, if you know where to look. The 2013 was rated an excellent 95 points by Gary Walsh of The Wine Front, his emphatic approval of the more rugged and robust style produced by Alex Sherrah and team, writ large.

What it Tastes Like

"This smells good. Oak is in the background and adds a little nutmeg and spice over the core of black and purple fruit. There’s something of a violet perfume too, and a suggestion of black tea and clean earthiness. Full bodied, thick with ferrous tannin, sweet tobacco and deep black fruits, well settled acidity and a long ruggedly tannic finish. Such pleasure here, even as a young wine. They’ve built this to last, and they’ve built it well. Superb Cabernet of resonance and impact." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
