The Lloyd Reserve Shiraz is Coriole’s signature wine and is a perfect addition to the cellar of any serious wine collector. The production of Lloyd Reserve Shiraz is small, ranging from 300-500 dozen depending on the season and is one of Langton’s classified wines of Australia. The 2018 is beautifully dense and savoury vintage of Lloyd Shiraz showing mulberry, blackberry, sweet spice and soy. A plush and full entry that continues with unfurling layers of tannin. The tannins are fine and long giving great persistence and presence. The palate is full bodied but elegant with some dark floral notes, berries and a subtle ferrous note.
Shiraz is a great tradition in McLaren Vale, dating back to the 1850’s. Lloyd Reserve Shiraz is produced from a single vineyard at Coriole, planted in 1919, with the first wine released in 1989. The soil and roots are extremely deep with generally no irrigation required. The wine is matured in French oak for approximately 18 months and then receives 18+ months in bottle before release.
Food pairing: Although this Shiraz sings alongside most rich, red meat dishes, it really needs no accompaniment. Perhaps just a wedge of aged cheddar.
Alcohol: 14.4% ABV
