Coriole Sangiovese 2019

Mark Lloyd's Italian varieties offer a flavour world far removed our usual menu of shiraz, cabernet and pinot noir. The limpid sangiovese appeals for its medium body, savoury flavours and taut, grippy tannins such a good combination with char-grilled meat of all kinds. The barbera startles with its vivid crimson colour and high-toned aroma - always reminiscent of summer berries, but in this warm vintage resembling very ripe mulberries. The palate is soft and round, but not without a tannic twist to finish. The deceptively pale nebbiolo offers deep, earthy flavours, tightly bound with firm, lingering, drying tannins. Chris Shanahan - Canberra Times

McLaren Vale winery Coriole pioneered this Italian variety in Australia first planting the Tuscan grape back in 1985, long before just about anyone else had thought of the idea. They were well ahead of fashionability curve. This is the 23rd vintage of their sangiovese, a dependably good choice to pair with Italian dishes, or roast meats. It's savoury and silky with sweet cherry aromas and nicely restrained on the palate with plenty of length, nice balance and soft tannins. - Sunday Examiner (Launceston, Tasmania)

Typical of the 2018 vintage this release shows bright, red fruit and lifted florals. The beguiling, Pinot-esque nose is loaded with aromas of earthy, forest floor, mace, anise, cassia bark and juniper berry. The creamy, delicate palate shows wild strawberry, cherry, raspberry, foraged mushrooms and an enticing creme brulee torched toffee character. The tannins are fine, feathery and have classic firm, Sangiovese length.

“Deep red-purple colour, bright and young. The bouquet is very fresh and bright and loaded with fresh dark berry aromas, a tickle of star anise and a hint of dried herb and mixed spice. A lovely spectrum of aroma and flavour, the firm tannin spine perfectly balanced and running the length of the palate. Very long. Outstanding wine, a classic in the making.” – 96 Points & 5 Stars Huon Hooke
