- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The visionary team at Coriole in Mclaren Vale have been pioneers of Italian varietals since 1985, making them one of the godfathers of Mediterranean wines in this country.
The famous Shiraz region has become a second home for the rustic varietals native to Italy and Spain, and Coriole’s Barbera is a first class example.
It’s a juicy, jubey, boisterous style of red which will take you by the hand and lead you on down to flavour town. A delicious ‘drink me now’ red and undoubtedly one of the country’s leading Barberas!
What It Tastes Like
“Jubey, jammy scents of ripe raspberries, nougat, coconut, cinnamon spice. It’s pretty! Juicy, crisp textured, brisk and light to medium weight red. Crunchy. Finishes with squeeze of orange juicy acidity. The acid to close is just a touch out of synch, but its a good, refreshing red and looks barbera-like for sure.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Nowadays, the region’s varietal diversity has majorly increased, the coastal location and warm climate proving perfect for a new wave of varieties from Italy, Spain and Portugal. The success of varieties such as Nero d’Avola, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, and Fiano has transformed McLaren Vale into one of the country’s most vibrant wine scenes. It’s where tradition meets innovation and it is producing some of the Australia’s finest wines.
