Sparta is from Coriole's Galaxidia vineyard, planted in 1998, and surrounded by olive trees. The original owners of this vineyard came from the countryside surrounding Sparta. The soils are Terra Rossa - red brown earth over limestone. Coriole's Sparta vineyard produces a vibrant red fruited and rich style of shiraz. Sparta is made to highlight the fruit and floral notes of McLaren Vale shiraz with good density and medium structure.

”Estate vines planted '97, open-fermented, plunged, 15 months in French oak (10% new). Deep crimson-purple; a gloriously rich shiraz, its plumage glinting in the sun on the finish after an opening display of blackberry, licorice, spice and acidity. Oak and tannins play important support roles.”
