Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz 2018


Categories: ,

Released 1st October 2021

This vineyard was planted pre-1919 at the bottom of the hill side at Coriole. This is a very exciting release and one of the most complete and composed wines ever from this vineyard. Yields were low in 2018 and our total production was 9 barrels or 280 dozen.

“100+yo vines on original rootstock. A concentrated wine with an impressive thrust of vinosity. A firm chassis of alloyed tannin and salty acidity corral blue/black-fruit aspersions, smoked-meat barrel-ferment aromas and iodine into a sheath of power and tension. The oak, nestled into the fray. This will live long. 96 points”
Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion

“Deep to opaque ruby-red core and rim. Dark berries, olives and wakame aromas. Deep and weighted on the palate, A big wine but very well built with intense fruit and rich savoury umami nuances. A firm tannin profile accentuates the savoury characters and drives it very long. 95 points”
Stuart Knox, The Real Review
