Our new vintage of Estate Shiraz is from the stellar 2018 vintage. A slightly richer and denser wine than the 2017 whilst still retaining the hallmark Coriole elegance. Lifted red and black fruits, full yet soft mouth coating tannins and impressive depth. Approachable now or will cellar well for 10-15 years.
"Blackberry and blueberry, dark chocolate and hazelnuts, some spice and tar. It’s full-bodied, dense and flavoursome, packed silty tannin, a savoury ferrous kind of thing happening, even acidity, and a bright almost brambly finish. It’s a good release. Age-worthiness is assured. 93+ points"
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
"This has an elegant touch rather than the heave-ho of so much in the region. Kudos! Fermented in open-top vessels and hand plunged before transfer to French hogsheads, the result feels more medium of density than full. The aromas more floral and succulent, than jam. Think violet scents and an effortless waft of dark cherry, iodine, anise, olive and assorted spice. A lovely flow to this. 93 points"
Ned Goodwin, James Halliday's Wine Companion
"Red-berry and some earthy, savory aromas here. The palate has undeniably fleshy, red-plum, licorice and chocolate flavors. Classic regional identity."
