An ongoing resurrection of some fabulous old vines, a distinguished Blewitt Springs site and a range of the most spectacular McLaren Vale wines. When Kelly and Bondar acquired Rayner Vineyard in 2013, they knew that everything depended on the management of site and soil to achieve the excellence of wine they had in mind. The most fastidious husbanding regimens and a tightly scheduled evolution towards organic viticulture, the propitious Rayner vines have never yielded finer harvests, all translating into a tour de force across the entire Bondar range. Salient quality and penurious pricing make for a compelling mix. Old vines grown to salubrious soils, the.. Model mclaren macerations»

Coriole Mary Kathleen Cabernet Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot McLaren Vale South Australia
Coriole was first developed by Geoffrey Kay, a distant relative of the Amery Vineyard Kays. Dr Hugh Lloyd GP sewed the vines which produce Mary Kathleen during a period when the fashion was to plant in contours around the local Seaview highlands. Named after the estate's matriarch, Mary Kathleen is crafted from three small blocks, originally planted in the 1960s. Perennially lauded and famously received, Mary Kathleen is generously mouthfilling with sweet fruit, earthy regional hints and complex spice.

The Seaview subregion of McLaren Vale generally has shallow soils which are red and brown earths with limestone and ironstone. This contrasts with deeper clays, sand and black biscay soils in other parts of McLaren Vale. Because the soils are shallow, controlled irrigation is critical for good flavour and colour by avoiding extreme stress. The soils at Coriole are about 80% terra rosa, that is red brown earths over limestone. Often this limestone has a capped shiny surface. Another area contails red earth with ironstone, and the oldest vineyard planted in 1920 is on deep clays. Two thirds or more of Cuvee Mary Kathleen is Cabernet Sauvignon, the balance in Merlot.
Deep plummy red colour. Aromatics of redcurrant, ripe mint and perfumed rose petals. With breathing, polished wood and a smokey cigar box aromas become evident. The palate shows bright fruit, lifted berries and blackcurrant supported by creamy textures. A brooding wine with structural tannin and good length, full of fruit and lovely soft tannins.
