Redstones were widely used in the construct of early buildings around the Coriole estate which date to 1860. The vines are planted to soils that are predominantly Terra rosa, shallow with red brown earth over hard capped limestone. They tend to produce deeply coloured red wines with good structure and backbone. The winemaking at Coriole is preceded by a thorough assessment of the plan for each style every year. The aim is to maintain the estate's tradition of producing premium full bodied red wines, focusing on Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. But it's Shiraz which excites, some of the very best young parcels of fruit, from vines punching well above their maturity and weight.
Crimson black colour. A nose that's more about fruit and florals than pepper and spice, leather notes and a sprinkle of caraway. Black cherry and plum emerge, the palate is generous, soft and rich but not overly ripe, plum flavours dominant, red and black berry characters follow. Lovely fine tannins on a finish that's well balanced, a wine that's excellent for current drinking alongside good food.
