About The Wine

It can be hard to track-down quality sub-$20 Shiraz in McLaren Vale these days, such is the want for this classic Aussie pairing of variety and region.

Here, Coriole combines fruit from their own estate with select parcels from friendly growers in the area - the idea being to put a quality red wine on the table that is affordably priced enough to be enjoyed any night of the week.

This 2016 release is super stuff. Gary Walsh awarded it 91 points, a very respectable score for Shiraz at this price.

It's ripe and flavoursome, a McLaren Vale Shiraz 101 sort of vibe, if you will, and just unbeatable value.

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.

The Wine Front

"Does the job very nicely, and well. Blackberry, nuts, a bit of chocolate and earth. Full bodied, but not leaden, tannin churns away quietly, finish is satisfying and pretty long. I like that earthy stuff that shows it’s McLaren Vale, not just red wine from anywhere." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
