The Dancing Fig

Coriole Estate has many Fig Trees planted. The Dancing Fig refers to the fig appearing to 'dance' in the cool, predominantly south eastern afternoon breeze which comes in off the southern ocean.

The Shiraz is estate grown on Coriole's predominantly Terra Rossa soils with the Mourvedre sourced from Coriole's Willunga property, on slatey soils at the southern end of the Vale. This is the fourth release of The Dancing Fig.

2015- 92 Points. Roses and spice, raspberries and plum. Medium bodied, bright and fresh, all pippy raspberry, hazelnut and earth, with light fine-grained tannin, and clean finish of good length and a smattering of fragrant herbs lingering. Gentle charm. Excellent - Winefront

2014- 92 Points. Coriole's reds are in fine form. This is another example. Fresh with blackberry, plum and leather flavour with highlights of clove and earth. It has deliciousness written all over it but it also has some heft. - James Halliday Wine Companion

2013- 92 Points. McLaren Vale blend of mourvedre, grenache and shiraz from one of the region’s foremost producers. It’s tasty. It’s well structured. It’s firm with ripe, blueberried flavour, sweet and savoury at once. Crushed leaves, tonic water, cloves. It’s good. Jubey. Confident from start to finish. - The Wine Front
