Other varieties are Fiano, Grenache, Barbera, Montepulciano, Merlot and Semillon on shallow, red-brown soils over hard capped limestone. Coriole manages most vineyards where fruit is sourced. Coriole also has vineyards in the subregions of Blewitt Springs and Willunga. The winemaking team is led by senior winemaker Alex Sherrah and Mark Lloyd. The Lloyds are working towards organic certification.

Tasting notes
Aromas of citrus, fresh cut pear, green apple and hints of kiwi merge with lively acidity and peach notes on the finish.

Wine maker notes
Chenin Blanc is Coriole’s principal white variety and was first planted in 1977. Chenin Blanc is an aromatic wine that has great fruit concentration and yet shows an outstanding ability to age. It has proven to be well suited to the moderately warm climate of McLaren Vale.

Technical notes
The grapes were cold pressed from partial whole bunches, fermented for 10-14 days in stainless steel tanks and filtered before bottling.
