Coriole are fortuitously positioned in the hills north of McLaren Vale township, an area known as Seaview, where the soils are generally shallow. The rich terra rossa on the distinguished old fruit blocks which grow Shiraz for the Lloyd Reserve however, are quite deep, the roots are long, and the vines require little irrigation. The old hand pruned and hand picked parcels wind their way around the hills, making the production of this exceptional Shiraz wine rather labour intensive. Following harvest, sorting and the crush, Lloyd is vinified in traditional open fermenters where it is treated to a course of hand plunging and extended maturation of eighteen months in a selection of small French oak barriques.
Rich taffetta red hues with robes of scarlet. The very concentrated nose displays cassis and berries, black fruit, bitter chocolate, coffee bean and cocoa, plum skins and earth. The intense palate is full and round, satisfyingly rich, dense and long offering up notes of pepper, leather and McLaren loams. A tight, structural, robust Lloyd Reserve supported by refined, even tannins and exceptional length.
