About The Wine
Dune is a new project from the family that brought you Coriole wines.
The fruit for this delicious new Rosé comes from the Blewitt Springs vineyard that the Lloyd family has procured over the last few years.
This is a blend of Carignan and Shiraz with a splash of Sangiovese picked early and dialled into a pale, dry and effortlessly drinkable style.
A touch of oak was used to enhance texture, but primarily this is about a light and breezy wine style that will match with everything from seafood to white meats.
Duncan and Peter Lloyd are the latest generation of Lloyds (of Coriole fame) to make wine in McLaren Vale.
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.
