Expert Reviews

Made from part-estate, part-purchased grapes; less richly concentrated but more lively than its sibling; the flavours are more to red fruits and spice. Ready sooner.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2011)

This blend of grapes from three McLaren Vale districts has aromatic ripe black fruit on the nose. The medium-bodied palate is fresh with integrated oak. Jeff Collerson, Daily Telegraph (05/FEB/2011)

Prune-like aromas lift off the nose. Solid, fleshy fruit flavours mingle with drying ripe oak tannins. A keeper. Rating 3.5 Stars - David Bowley, Nick Haselgrove & Mark Cooper (01/DEC/2010)

The Coriole Redstone is a softer style that is a sound choice for outdoor dining or as a classy barbecue red. Mike Burnett, Launceston Examiner (27/OCT/2010)

If youre after an easy-drinking flavoursome red wine its hard to go past a style like this. Plenty of mid-palate grunt albeit on a medium body with firmish, though fine tannins and a generous mouth-filling finish.Rating 88 - Ray Jordan, West Australian (21/OCT/2010)

A severe March heat wave in 2008 brought vintage on in a rush and pushed grape ripeness to unprecedented levels. Coriole’s Mark Lloyd said he coped by declassifying over ripe, late picked batches. Certainly he produced a couple of very good wines in the difficult conditions. Redstone, sourced from Coriole and other vineyards, is a nice chunky wine at the price, packed with ripe flavours and cut with firm, satisfying, savoury tannins.Chris Shanahan, www.chrisshanahan.com (17/OCT/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose displays mocha, coffee and red fruits.

Palate

The palate is rich and generous showing plums, strawberry and blueberry. A balanced wine with a creamy, structured palate. Ripe, even tannins with good length. Redstone is a drink now style, but you could confidently cellar this wine for several years.

Wine Background

The Redstone range is produced from Coriole’s own estate vineyards and other selected sites in the McLaren Vale Region. The name comes from the distinctively coloured ironstone so common in the vineyards and buildings at Coriole.
