Winery Details

    The Lloyd family founded Coriole in 1967, and are considered pioneers in the McLaren Vale region, and visionaries in the planting of Italian and French varieties. Long before it was fashionable, Mark Lloyd developed vineyards of Sangiovese, Picpoul, Chenin Blanc, Nero d’Avola, and others, plus of course, Shiraz. They are considered one of the leading lights of the region.

Press Review

    Coriole Piquepoul 2023
    Piquepoul is known for its retention of acidity in the hot Mediterranean climate of southern France, and it brings that quality to McLaren Vale, where the Lloyd family regards it as a favourite variety. Its acidity is coupled with a lemony flavour (Meyer, not sour) in this iteration.

    Coriole Piquepoul 2023
    The classic match for oysters, though I’d rather drink the wine and leave the oysters to someone else.
    So much crunch and brine, with green apple, lemon zest and some floral top notes. It’s very stony and dry, but delivers a good amount of flavour, and the finish has some raw almond and grapefruity bite. Delightful thirst slaking wine.

    Coriole Piquepoul 2023
    Straw and slivered almond aromas; the palate frisky with bright acidity and drying phenolics, the savouriness of subtle barrel usage, and a rich and textured palate that rolls long into an extended aftertaste which carries a slight kick of tannin bitterness and apparent alcohol. This has the strength to carry heartier foods.

    Coriole Piquepoul 2023
    This engaging Piquepoul delivers a precise core of lemon rind, almond skin laced with potpourri and saline. Great savoury impact before building through to a long, drying finish.

    Coriole Piquepoul 2023
    Despite a relatively low alcohol of just under 12 per cent, there’s good ripe fruit in here – pulpy fresh green grapes – and a touch of creamy richness before the variety’s trademark, oyster-loving acidity kicks in. Try with freshly shucked Sydney Rocks.
