  • THE BRIEF
  • The Lloyd family founded Coriole in 1967, and are considered pioneers in the McLaren Vale region, and visionaries in the planting of Italian and French varieties. Long before it was fashionable, Mark Lloyd developed vineyards of Sangiovese, Picpoul, Chenin Blanc, Nero d’Avola, and others, plus of course, Shiraz. They are considered one of the leading lights of the region.

    The Estate vineyards are largely planted with Shiraz vines, dating back to 1919. The variety balance grown at Coriole is roughly 65% Shiraz, 10% Sangiovese, 5% Chenin, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Nero d'Avola. The remaining 10% is made up of Fiano, Grenache, Barbera, Mourvedre and Montepulciano amongst others. There are in total 25 different vineyards ranging from 90 to 3 years old.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Coriole was founded by Hugh and Molly Lloyd in 1967, and they released their first wine in 1969. The Estate is still owned by the Lloyd family and is now managed by Mark and Paul Lloyd. Coriole is situated in the undulating hills of the densely planted McLaren Vale region just within sight of the sea and less than an hour from Adelaide. The original farmhouses were built in 1860 and are now the epicentre of the garden and cellar door at the winery. The original vineyards were planted in 1919. The Lloyd family are considered pioneers in the McLaren Vale region, and visionaries in the planting of Italian and French varieties. Long before it was fashionable, Mark Lloyd developed vineyards of Sangiovese, Picpoul, Chenin Blanc, Nero d’Avola, and others, plus of course, Shiraz.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Deep red-purple colour, bright and young. The bouquet is very fresh and bright and loaded with fresh dark berry aromas, a tickle of star anise and a hint of dried herb and mixed spice. A lovely spectrum of aroma and flavour, the firm tannin spine perfectly balanced and running the length of the palate. Very long. Outstanding wine, a classic in the making.

    MAX ALLEN - AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW


    I reviewed the 2017 vintage of this wine glowingly. The 2018 is, if anything, even better: really juicy red and black cherry fruit with a hint of pot-pourri perfume held together with fine, elegant, savoury tannins that carry the wine beautifully along the tongue. A wine for both drinking now with relish and for putting away: this vintage will provide great pleasure for the next 10 years at least.
