Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.

Winery CORIOLE

Located among the undulating hills of McLaren Vale, Coriole is a family owned winery with a long history of viticulture dating back to 1919. The vineyard soils are predominantly terra rosa producing deeply coloured well-structured red wines with excellent capacity for ageing. Coriole has 25 different vineyards with plantings primarily of Shiraz alongside smaller holdings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Merlot. A pioneer of Italian varieties in Australia, the estate has significant mature vineyard holdings of Sangiovese complemented by plantings of Barbera, Montepulciano, and Fiano. Recent moves into organic viticulture look set to expand in the coming years.
