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.

The Chenin displays citrus, fresh pear and green apple with hints of kiwifruit. The palate is lively and fresh with pear juice and peaches. A delicious white wine that finishes clean with balanced acidity.

Producer Information

Coriole is situated in the undulating hills of the densely planted McLaren Vale region just within sight of the sea and less than an hour from Adelaide.
The original farmhouses were built in 1860 and are now the epicentre of the garden and cellar door at the winery. The original vineyards were planted immediately after the first world war.
Shiraz is the great tradition of McLaren Vale going back over 150 years, and is the major variety planted on the estate. The first wine released was the 1970 Claret (Shiraz). Coriole has been an Australian pioneer of Sangiovese and Italian varieties since 1985.
Coriole is managed by two family members, Mark and Paul Lloyd.
Winemaking at Coriole is a very traditional process. Red wines are mainly open fermented in stainless steel or old wax lined concrete tanks. Ferments are hand plunged. New oak is used but many wines such as Sangiovese and Redstone Shiraz are specifically matured in older oak to gain maturity but with minimum contribution of oak flavour and extract in the wine.
It is an old maxim that good wine is made in the vineyard. Fortunately Coriole owns or manages most of the vineyards where our grapes are sourced. One of the features of the winemaking is that each block or part of a block are processed separatly to maximise the potential of the fruit. This also allows the wine quality to be linked to the vineyard management of each block.
The winemaking team at Coriole is led by Senior Winemaker Simon White along with winemaker Alex Sherrah and General Manager and previous winemaker Mark Lloyd.
The soils are predominantly terra rosa soils (over 80%). These soils are shallow with red-brown earth over hard capped limestone. They tend to produce deeply coloured red wines with good structure and backbone that show great capacity for ageing.
The Estate vineyards are predominantly Shiraz, planted as early as 1919. The variety balance grown at Coriole is 65% Shiraz, 10% Sangiovese, 5% Chenin and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Other varieties are Fiano, Grenache, Barbera, Montepulciano, Merlot and Semillon. There are in total 25 different vineyards from 90 years old to 3 years old.
Coriole manages most vineyards where fruit is sourced. It also has vineyards in the sub-regions of Blewitt Springs and Willunga.
This year the first moves have been made to organic viticulture. This programme is set to expand in following years.
