Initial impressions were of bloody dusty, smoky aromas. A medium weight savoury palate with red fruits and savoury firm tannins although it is very young. I remember some years ago touring Tuscany with Peter Scudamore-Smith MW, who, at the time didn’t think any decent Sangiovese was produced in Australia. I think if anyone will do it it will be Coriole. They pioneered Sangiovese in Australia with the first plantings in 1985. This is a great food wine and a very good rendition of a new World Sangiovese. — 8 months ago
An excellent wine brought to the BYO Indian Restaurant in Cairns. Close to the WOTN, thanks Lindsay. Coriole’s Lloyd Shiraz has always been a rich wonderful full bodied expression of old vine McLaren Vale fruit. Red and black fruits with chocolate and supple fluid tannins. From an excellent vintage. Great stuff. — 2 years ago
