  • 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.

    Our PYLA vineyard sits at the bottom of our hillside and is planted to Nero d'Avola, Carignan, Mourvedre, and Negroamaro with smaller amounts of Montepulciano and Grenache . The varieties are handpicked and fermented with a high proportion of whole berries. After ferment the wine is put to seasoned oak barrels for 10 months prior to bottling . The 2018 has been a beauty from the very start. Intensely perfumed with floral lift, sweet herbs, ripe cherry and a campari like note. The palate is long and concentrated with fine graceful tannin, medium bodied and with great refreshment.

  • 94 Points - Wine Front (2017) - "These are wonderful, savoury and charismatic wines. Their point of difference and drinking appeal makes them, well, so appealing. Purpleness, iron filings, aniseed, dried herbs and flowers, with boysenberry, red berries, and a little chocolate. It’s medium-bodied, cool and fresh in its balanced acidity, gentle but dense tannin, new leather and dried herbs, but with a subdued sweetness of fruit that keeps it all on track. Tops."
