Tasting Notes

The 2016 vintage is pure, focused and refined. Beautifully balanced acidity and freshness ensure that this wine will live gracefully for 30 years. On the palate, plush and juicy ripe cassis flavours combine with a mocha like creaminess from French Oak. Beautifully textured, a fine tannin line framed powerful fruit, providing all the hallmarks of a great John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon for the cellar.

Accolades & Awards

100 Points - Andrew Caillard

"Deep crimson. Lovely pure blackcurrant elderberry herb garden aromas with hints of espresso/ roasted chestnut notes. Beautiful concentrated wine with blackcurrant elderberry chinotto herb flavours, fine-grained and plentiful yet vigorous tannins, superb mid palate richness and integrated roasted chestnut/ cedar oak notes. Finishes chalky firm with a long inky/ graphite plume. Made for the long haul. Powerfully expressive yet unforced wine with superb vinosity, richness, density and volume. Superb. The fruit derives from the V&A (Victoria & Albert) and Nursery Vineyards, both located on classic terra-rossa soils. From a dry, mild to warm growing season. Wait a few years to let it unfold, 2025-2050."


98 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion

"From a tiny fraction (about 1% ) of Wynns' cabernet crush handled with kid gloves in the specialised winery. Densely coloured, its amalgam of cassis and bay leaf is held within a fine web of ripe tannins, the excellent vintage also helping shape a cabernet of the highest class."


98 Points - Huon Hooke

"The bouquet has a subtle patina of smoky, toasty oak while the palate has an extra level of density and power over the other Wynns cabernets. Lashings of supple tannin. Great intensity, power and persistence. A glorious wine of fabulous flavour and power - indeed, a great cabernet!"


98 Points - Toni Paterson


97 Points - Campbell Mattison

"The class of it. This is cabernet at its purest and most authoritative. It tastes of cassis, cedar wood, bay leaves and mint, though the wide spread of fine-etched tannin and the brilliance of the finish is what really distinguishes it. Superb red wine."


95 Points - Nick Stock

"This is a very impressive and regal cabernet with a rich array of ripe blackcurrants, mulberries and blackberries on offer, as well as a cedary and gently chalky edge. There’s a very rich and powerful core of deep-set fruit, as well as a thread of rich chocolate flavor and a very polished, assertive core of tannin that holds super long."


95 Points - Mike Beanie

"Striking bouquet of dark forest berry fruits, dark chocolate, faint garrigue, a touch of eucalyptus and clove-cedar. Slippery texture that slides into a firm corkscrew of tannins. Incredibly silky and full upfront, dark berries, dark chocolate, sweet spice, then the savoury elements turn up and there’s graphite, granite and dried herbs. Serious feeling thing this, with power and grace hand-in-hand."


Technical

First made in 1982, the John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon was conceived as a flagship wine for Wynns. John Riddoch himself was a true visionary. Amongst his many achievements are the building of the Wynns Gabled winery and the establishment of established the Coonawarra Fruit ColonyJohn Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon is made in small quantities from the best available fruit grown on the estate's extensive Cabernet Sauvignon plantings in the heart of the terra rossa soil It has become a definitive Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, made only in years when grapes of extraordinarily high quality are available, using less than one percent of the top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
