Top Aussie Red

Coriole Barbera, McLaren Vale 2012 $25

Deep red-purple, bright colour. Subdued but true aromas, ripe and clean with some density and latency. The same on palate: full-bodied and firm, deep and structured with very good flavour, depth and concentration. Very good indeed, with real grunt and backbone. Excellent wine, long and bright with good primary fruit as well as savouriness and structure.┬áNow to 2025. 14 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: grilled lamb cutlets

Stockists: Corkscrew Cellars Darlinghurst; Sackville Hotel
