Best known for their award winning McLaren Vale reds, the second most conspicuous varietal wine at Coriole is Chenin Blanc. Their efforts have been ranked within the top ten Chenin Blancs of the world at Rendez Vous du Chenin Competition in France, no mean feat for an Australian. The soils at Coriole are mostly Terra rossa, red brown earths over limestone. Another part of the vineyard is endowed with red earth ironstones, the oldest block, established in 1920 is planted to deep clays. The drier than normal summers put a greater importance on land management and careful fruit selection throughout the vineyards and all during the vinification process.
 
Pale lime/ straw hues. Citrus, fresh pear and green apple bouquet with hints of kiwifruit. The palate is lively and fresh with pear juice and peach characters. A delicious and well balanced white wine exhibiting aromatic fruit flavours before a crisp acid finish. Chenin Blanc suits a wide range of foods and can also be served as an aperitif wine. It particularly suits the piquant nature of Thai and Indian cuisine.

Grapes are sourced from specialized vineyards in the Loire, Bordeaux and Charentais, pressed, inoculated and fermented into a dry still wine. To this base, a small quantity of drawing liquid, called Prise de mousse, is added to induce a secondary vinification. The fermenting wine is bottled and corked, encouraged by the action of waking yeasts. A second fermentation ensues under the caves of H. Grandin, hidden from light and far away from the warmth of Valley Loire. It is this ancillary ferment which fills the wine with effervescence. After a year in bottle, ageing on sediment lees, the characteristic subtlety and finesse evolves into the character and style that's known around the world as Grandin.
