- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY
Dark cherries, dusted in cacao lifted by subtle gamey & bay leaf notes entwined with red spice florals. Beautifully layered with bright raspberries and dark mulberries moving into the mid palate giving the wine vibrancy and a succulent line of acidity. Lingering pepper and spice notes, mixed with hints of smoked deli meats wrapped in silky malleable tannin show depth and texture. This is accompanied by the use of fine French oak matching the subtleties of this cool climate expression of Shiraz, creating a complex wine of sophistication and elegance.
97 Points - James Halliday
"What a wine. It's spine-tingling, thrilling and the epitome of elegance. Vivid purple with red plums and black cherries, a floral note wafting in with powdered ginger and star anise. An evenly modulated palate, extraordinary powdery tannins and an ultra-long finish. There's such depth and complexity here, and it just appears effortless."
93 Points - Huon Hooke
"Deep, bright purple/red colour and a slightly raw, grapy, faintly floral aroma, quite youthful and straightforward. It's very fresh. The wine is medium-bodied and soft in the mouth, with a faint trace of spice and red fruits, and mild, soft tannins. Elegance is the byword. It's very approachable already but will doubtless age well."
Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate's best-of-vintage Shiraz and named after David Wynn’s young son. The wine is a legend of the Australian wine story with good examples of the 1955 Michael offering an outstanding experience. The wine is made in small quantities and only exceptional vintages.
