2014 Coriole Barbera

Another good Italian varietal from Coriole in McLaren Vale. Nice fresh Barbera, ready to drink right away.

A delicate savory nose, with plenty of dark cherry fruit aromas. Soft tannins and a good level of acidity. A very approachable young wine. Great for a group and quite food friendly.

2014 Coriole Nero D'Avola

Another great Nero D'avola hailing from McLaren Vale. Made in a fresh and easy drinking style this wine is very approachable and ready to drink right away. Coriole are helping to lead the way in the production of great wines from Italian varietals in this region.

Bright fresh red fruit aromas, with plenty of cherry, mingle with some light spicy notes and a hint of aniseed. Silky soft tannins with decent palate length. Found myself going for a second glass pretty quick. Paired very well with pan seared duck breast.
