The grape variety Nero d’Avola was originally grown in southern Sicily and thrives in a warm, Mediterranean climate, a very suitable variety for the McLaren Vale region. Coriole produces a fruit forward, youthful and vibrant early drinking style.

"Fermented with 15% whole bunches; seven days on skins. There’s juiciness here, as is the varietal tendency, but there’s restraint, too. Raspberry, black plum and dark cherry, with six months in neutral oak adding a savoury dimension alongside bunchy white pepper, hardy Mediterranean herbs and a little earthiness. There’s lovely poise, the tannins feel resolved, which is not always the case with nero, and the acidity is typically sprightly. 92 points"
Marcus Ellis, James Halliday's Wine Companion

"Aromas of flowers, crushed musk, orange rind and pickled red cherries. A medium-bodied nero made in a vibrant, sassy, finely tuned style. Best with a chill. Drink now. 91 points"
