Dune Shiraz Fiano Mingsha Shan
The next Generation of the Lloyd family (Coriole) planting their flag in the Vale. A new project from brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd, Dune wines sees them step out from the shadow of Coriole wines. Sourcing fruit from a single vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of Mclaren Vale. Organic in conversion, this sandy vineyard has been completely re-imagined since being purchased by the brothers in 2009. Planting and grafting over southern Mediterranean varietals has seen them create a unique range of blends alongside some classic and so2 free shiraz.
This little beauty shows the lighter side of McLaren Vale shiraz. Fruit from our East Block are thinned to 3 ton /acre- this is fermented with a high proportion of whole berries. We also blend in a Shiraz/Fiano co-ferment component to bring some aromatic lift and freshness to the palate.
