This is Coriole's second release of a Shiraz Fiano co-ferment. The Shiraz comes from our contour block, planted in 1967, which typically shows spicy, fragrant notes. We accentuate this further with the addition of some Fiano skins into the ferment. The result is a lively and lush shiraz that is medium plus in body with lots of soft tannin to balance the fruit.
"It’s medium to full-bodied, but nice and fresh, at once silky and earthy. Blackberry, boysenberry, dried herb, something a little floral, red and black berries, subtle amaro bitterness, tannin laying down the grip on the long finish. Has energy, depth and a cool feel. Coriole are really in top form at present. 94 points"
