JEREMY OLIVER 95 POINTS!"A very stylish, fine-grained and evenly balanced shiraz of genuine finesse. Scented with sweet red and black fruits and fresh cedar/vanilla oak backed by smoky nuances of charcuterie meats, cloves and dark chocolate, it also reveals suggestions of mint and mineral. Juicy, slightly meaty flavours of dark berries, plums and redcurrants accented by notes of pepper and spice knit tightly with a supple undercarriage of silky tannins, finishing long, smooth and deliciously sour-edged."Jeremy Oliver
ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS!"The Coriole flagship is the 2006 Lloyd Reserve Shiraz, sourced from a vineyard planted in 1919 and aged in French oak for 22 months. Opaque purple-colored, it exhibits an alluring bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, black pepper, espresso, game, plum, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Slightly restrained on the palate, it has plenty of savory, spicy fruit which will need a few years to fully express itself. Well-balanced and lengthy, it should be in fine form from 2011 to 2022."JM, Wine Advocate # 181 Feb 2009
JAMES HALLIDAY 96 POINTS!"A masterly display of McLaren Vale shiraz at its opulent best, flush with black fruits and dark chocolate with exceptionally fine tannins running through the back-palate and aftertaste. It deserves a high quality cork or a Diam."James Halliday, Wine Companion 2010
