About The Wine
A new age McLaren Vale red wine here from the notable Lloyd family of Coriole fame. The brothers Duncan and Peter forging a new project from their Blewitt Springs vineyard.
Nero d'Avola has become one of the great rising varieties of McLaren Vale, with Coriole doing plenty to raise its profile. And Nero takes centre stage here, surrounded by Shiraz, Carignan and Mourvedre.
It's a beautiful wine. Intricate, alluring and irresistible, and well and truly derserving of Mike Bennie's rave 93 point review.
This is a brilliant first offering from this exciting new McLaren Vale project.
Duncan and Peter Lloyd are the sons of Mark and Mary Kathleen of Coriole wines.
Growing up immersed in the hotbed of food and wine culture that is McLaren Vale, the boys have now partnered up to start their own wine project with a stunning vineyard in Blewitt Springs as the centrepiece.
The grapes are farmed organically, the wines are made with a gentle touch, but rather than let the 'minimal intervention' philosophy hem them in with dogma, the boys are free to tinker and blend as they see fit.
These are fantastic, energetic wines that have set a cracking pace with only a few vintages under the brand's belt. Keep your eyes peeled for what's next for the brothers Lloyd.
