Lloyd Reserve Shiraz 2018, Coriole

£42.95 per bottle

About this wine

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

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
