Coriole Vineyards

Coriole was founded by Hugh and Molly Lloyd in 1967. The Estate is still owned by the Lloyd family and is now managed by Mark and Paul Lloyd. The Estate 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 immediately after the first world war. Shiraz is the great tradition of McLaren Vale going back over 150 years, and is the major variety planted on the estate. Coriole was founded in 1967 and the first wine released was the 1970 Claret (Shiraz). Coriole has been an Australian pioneer of Sangiovese and Italian varieties since 1985. We are proud to bring you the Coriole Nero d'Avola which, I think you will agree is a stunning wine.

Tasting Notes

Dark red in colour. On the nose aromas of redcurrant, berries and cassis notes. Fruit flavours are complemented by dried herb and savoury spice. A wonderful rich and mouth filling wine.

Food Matches

Try with rack of lamb with a rosemary crust.
