- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY
Vibrant red purple with intense red/black core. Aromatically enticing spiced plum and classic Coonawarra raspberries. A smooth, rich and complex palate infused with vibrant red fruits and framed with very fine silky tannins. The 2015 Michael epitomises a cooler style of Shiraz from a warmer year. Fruit is medium- bodied with red, fruits and a sophisticated, silky texture. The wine has genuine concentration with refinement.

Coonawarra shiraz is an interesting conversation. A dialogue between cool climate precision, mid-palate warmth and a certain austerity that is far from, say, the exuberant floral persuasion of Beechworth, Yarra or the Canberra region. This wine more than compensates with a skein of energetic peppery acidity threading licorice, thyme and black and blue fruit all with a fine boned tannic needle. There is plenty of oak, but ample intensity and concentration of fruit, too, reassuring the drinker that all will gel effortlessly with patience.

Medium deep crimson. Fragrant blackberry, cassis, graphite aromas with lovely integrated new oak complexity. Beautiful seductive pure dense blackberry black currant fruits with brambly/ grainy textures and roasted chestnut notes. Finishes minerally with superb fruit persistency and tannin plume. Understated power and elegance. Should get even better with some bottle age.
95 Points Huon Hooke
This is not a big wine, rather it's elegant and beautifully balanced, tight and reserved and built for long ageing. It's a layered wine, fine-boned and intense, with plum and cranberry aromas, subtle spice touches and low-key oak impact. Cellar it!
Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s best-of-vintage Shiraz. The fruit used for this wine comes from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is only made in years when the best quality fruit is available. The first Michael (then called Michael Hermitage) was a one- off from the 1955 vintage, made after proprietor David Wynn noticed the outstanding quality of the wine from two particular barrels and ordered them to be bottled separately. Named after David Wynn’s young son, this is a legendary Australian wine
