Coriole Vineyards was founded by the Lloyd Family in 1967 and is managed by Mark and Paul Lloyd. The oldesst vineyards were planted in 1919, in the Seaview subregion of McLaren Vale in South Australia. The estate vineyards are planted to Shiraz (65%), Sangiovese (10%), Chenin Blanc (5%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). 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
A balanced, full bodied wine that offers pronouncedaromas of plum, blueberry and black fruit. The palate is rich and generous with structure, supple tannins and good length.

Wine maker notes
The Redstone range is produced from Coriole’s own estate vineyards and other selected sites in the McLaren Vale Region. The name comes from the distinctively coloured ironstone so common in the vineyards and buildings at Coriole.

Technical notes
The grapes were macerated with daily punch downs and fermented for 10 days with pump overs. The wine was aged in one and two year old French (80%) and American oak barrels and was minimally filtered before bottling.
