We are extremely proud to offer a world exclusive pre-release of 2013 Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz from the world-renowned McLaren Vale. This is a staggeringly low price for a wine that hails from a single vineyard site planted just after World War I in 1919; an unbroken lineage practically unheard of in the Old World.
Awarded 97 points by James Halliday, 2013 Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz comes from less than two hectares of almost 100-year-old vines; traditional, dry-grown, organically-farmed, hand-picked, open-fermented and matured for 20 months in French oak.
What’s more, Lloyd Reserve Shiraz has been awarded an “Excellent” ranking by the Langton’s Classification - the unbiased benchmark and ‘Honour Roll’ of Australian fine wine that helped give Penfolds Grange its iconic status and that judges wines based on performance in the open market, demand and price over at least ten years. Those who attended our Langton’s Tasting in March had the opportunity to taste the 2012 Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz, which received 95 points from Wine Advocate and James Halliday, and can attest to its quality. The 2013 looks set to surpass it…
What James Halliday calls “the glory of wines such as this” really redefines the meaning of ‘old vines’. The 100 cases, currently resting in Coriole’s cellar to be delivered late-November 2016, are selling fast...
