About The Wine
This is a new release from the Lloyd family in McLaren Vale.
The Lloyds have always been huge ambassadors for the potential of Italian varieties in the Vale. Here's their newest addition to their range.
Negroamaro is a spicy, medium bodied red variety that pairs perfectly with rich pastas or cured meats. This variety is famous for having a super explosive nose and vibrant, spicy palate - the Lloyds have brought a lovely version to the table.
Enjoy now or over the medium term.
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.
