Coriole Wine Lunch

Wednesday, 13 December 2017

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.

Winemaking at Coriole is a very traditional process. Red wines are mainly open fermented in stainless steel or old wax lined concrete tanks. Ferments are hand plunged. New oak is used but many wines such as Sangiovese and Redstone Shiraz are specifically matured in older oak to gain maturity but with minimum contribution of oak flavour and extract in the wine.

It is an old maxim that good wine is made in the vineyard. Fortunately, Coriole owns or manages most of the vineyards where our grapes are sourced. One of the features of the winemaking is that each block or part of a block are processed separately to maximise the potential of the fruit. This also allows the wine quality to be linked to the vineyard management of each block.

The winery has an enviable reputation for introducing alternative wines to our market, which consistently show varietal flavours and provenance. Join us at the Club for our last wine lunch of 2017 that reveals the exciting flavours from this prominent McLaren Vale winery.
