Winery Details

    The next Generation of the Lloyd family (Coriole) planting their flag in the Vale. A new project from brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd, Dune wines sees them step out from the shadow of Coriole wines. Sourcing fruit from a single vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of Mclaren Vale. Organic in conversion, this sandy vineyard has been completely re-imagined since being purchased by the brothers in 2009. Planting and grafting over southern Mediterranean varietals has seen them create a unique range of blends alongside some classic and so2 free shiraz.

Press Review

    Dune Shiraz Desert Sands 2019
    The vaunted Blewitt Springs, the source again. The lowest-yielding cuvée, such is the density, savouriness and pliancy of the tannins, al dente as they stream across the gums to ensure the fruit, no matter how ripe, maintains a sense of decorum. Chiselled. Blue-fruit aspersions, creamy-ish oak (10% new) and loads of star anise, cocoa powder and tapenade. Serious texture, without being too cerebral.
