About The Wine

Prosecco was the logical Sparkling for Coriole to add to their stable of excellent value wines.

The Prosecco adds a high-quality fizzy treat to their Italian fleet. Rarely seen outside of their beautiful cellar door in McLaren Vale, this offers great drinking at a bargain price.

Gary Walsh awarded the 2016 release a highly recommended 91 points, calling it "a very good Prosecco."

Crisp, vivacious and playful, this is the perfect aperitif.

About Coriole

Coriole is a McLaren Vale institution.

It's a winery with two sides. On one hand, they craft classic regional versions of Shiraz and Cabernet which are exemplary. On the other, they have been a trailblazer for emerging varieties (Italian varieties, in particular) in Australia. 

Owner and winemaker, Mark Lloyd was one of the first in the country to experiment with Sangiovese and Fiano and has been hugely influential in bringing these varieties into the Australian wine zeitgeist.

Today, Mark's son Duncan has taken over the winemaking duties and the experimentation with emerging varieties continues. Nero d'Avola, Negroamaro, Piquepoul have come into the fold.

Coriole never stands still. They are trailblazers that have had a huge impact on the changing face of modern Australian wine.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Carries a little more colour than some, then into floral, apple and almost an almond thing. It’s dry, well defined, offers a good amount of flavour, with a saline cracker flavour, and a pretty convincing finish. The bubbles are playful without being over-bearing. Here’s a very good Prosecco." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Prosecco is the traditional Sparkling Wine of Northern Italy made from the grape of the same name. Unlike Champagne, Prosecco is made using the Charmat method, which is tank fermented as opposed to bottle.

Prosecco is the lastest in the batch of Italian varieties to be released by Coriole - inspired by Tim Lloyd, young brother of Mark. It is a fresh and delicate style Sparkling wine... the perfect aperitif.
