Halliday Wine Companion: 96 Points

Lloyd Reserve Shiraz 2014, Coriole

£42.50 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 and scored 96 points through Halliday Wine Companion.  Luscious and layered aromas of black fruit, roasted spices, dark chocolate & a subtle note of marzipan. The palate is deliciously complex with intense fruit; plum, boysenberry & rhubarb. An elegant wine with great balance and restrained use of oak. A thoroughly concentrated and textured wine that will confidently cellar for the next 10-20 years.  Although this Shiraz sings alongside most rich, red meat dishes, it really needs no accompaniment.

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.

    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."
