There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts.

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.
