About The 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.

Aside from producing one of the most collectable Shirazes in the country, the Lloyd Reserve, Coriole has made it their mission to exemplify just how conducive “the Vale” is to Italian varieties. Their Sangiovese is widely regarded by many as a benchmark wine by both 'Sangio' connoisseurs and beginners alike.

The 2016 is the 30th consecutive vintage of this wine, a remarkable achievement and something the Lloyd family can be extremely proud of. And it looks in great form too, with a very tidy 93 point review from Gary Walsh.

This is the perfect place to start if you are looking to explore Italian varieties. Complex, affordable and outrageously delicious!

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

"An excellent release. It’s fresh but dense, cherry and hazelnut with a spray of dried herb, lovely bright flavour, a bit of chewy tannin, clean acidity, and a long fresh and savoury finish, that tannin cleaning up nicely. It’s classic Sangiovese, with a McLaren Vale twist." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
