Wynns Coonawarra Estate

John Riddoch Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon

Last years superlative 2015 ( the best yet Sue Hodder said) will be a hard act to follow although Andrew Caillard MW, the Bordeaux expert at Langtons has already given it 💯 points. Very youthful deep crimson with purple rim. The nose and palate are tight, brooding and latent with so much to give. Dark berry fruits on the full bodied palate. Beautifully made with a long life of up to 30 Years ahead of it. A Tour de Force. Don’t touch the first one for 5 and preferably 10 years. — 17 days ago

Vintage Release Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Delectable: This is a new Cuvée for Wynns for this year called O’Deas Vineyard Red Blend. Only a small vineyard of 3.13 hectares planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The warmer 2016 vintage enabled Wynns to make a field blend of the 4 varieties. I had brief notes - Mulberry, dusty Bordeaux blend still with the Coonawarra mint in evidence. Perfect balance - you could drink this now or cellar for 20 years. — 17 days ago

Bos Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Beautiful Cab Sav (2009 vintage). Robust yet refined. Leave to breathe for at least half a day. Would go well paired with a robust tomato dish or a medium rare beef steak. — 12 days ago

Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Annual Wynnsday releases with winemaker Sue Hodder. This is the 62nd vintage of the Black Label - quite a heritage. This is a more elegant style from the cooler 2017 vintage following the warm 2016. There are black currant Cabernet aromas with Coonawarra mint in abundance. Sue says she likes to drink Black Label at around 8 to 12 years of age. I have had much older examples in pristine condition though. — 17 days ago
