Coriole Chenin Blanc 2023


Planted in 1977, Coriole has honed its craft with this variety ever since. Nestled in the moderately warm embrace of McLaren Vale, it offers a tantalising expression. As the wine flows into the glass, notes of pear, honeydew melon, and freshly cut herbs dance forth. Once open, wet stone notes emerge, adding to its allure. On the palate, lively flavours of cucumber, ginger, and green apple harmoniously intertwine, creating a captivating encounter. For the perfect pairing, I opt for oven-cooked Barramundi with a crust of macadamia and chives. The wine’s upfront fruitiness, lush mid-palate, and zesty acidity seamlessly complement each bite, resulting in a deeply satisfying mouthfeel. As the flavours meld and mingle, a delightful aftertaste of roasted macadamia lingers, a pleasurable sensation. This charming, generous, and flavourful pairing beckons you to explore Chenin Blanc as a refreshing white wine alternative. Who knows, it just might become your new favourite indulgence!
