Co-fermentation of the two varieties creates a rich and textured style, with unique tannin structure. Targeting a long skin soak takes the naturally rich fruit into savoury and complex territory. Dark brambly fruits are layered with smoky black tea fragrances and black spices. Velvety tannin creates depth and is defined by crisp acidity and beautiful line, leaving the palate full and long with a smoky gravelly finish.
96 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
Gorgeous aromas of violets and other flowers, red berries rather than black, the palate fine-boned and elegant. This is typical of the understated style of the V & A Lane wines. (74% cabernet; 26% shiraz, picked and fermented together, the cabernet crop restricted to encourage it to ripen concurrently with the shiraz)
95 Point Rated - Ned Goodwin Mw Halliday Wine Companion
A superlative example of this archetypal Australian blend, with the blue-fruited pulp and violet aromatics of the shiraz, melding effortlessly with a blackcurrant-herbal astringency of the cabernet. Olive, sage and bracken, too. The structural carapace is fascinating: a pepper twine of acidity and firmer, more stolid tannins. As juicy and exuberant as it is stiff-upper lipped. Long and compelling.
95 Point Rated - Toni Paterson The Real Review
A seamless blend of 74% cabernet sauvignon and 26% shiraz, with the grapes co-fermented to create a wine with a unique tannin structure. It is incredibly harmonious with impressive fragrance, mid-palate concentration and length. Enjoy the intense dark berry fruit and subtle spice
93 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front
Fine fingers of tannin. Tangy acidity. A pure, even flow of red cherry and plum-like flavour, helped along by fennel and sweet cedarwood. Elegance in vinous form. South Australian shiraz painted in delicious watercolours.
International Wine And Spirit Competition 2017
A very warm and dry spring led to early flowering, veraison and harvest. The warm November temperatures were ideal for good berry set necessitating extensive green harvest (thinning) for quality. The grape ripening months of February and March were influenced by a cold “upwelling” off the coast but overall, a warmer- than-average Coonawarra vintage. We describe our 2016 wines as being at the “fuller” end of our long-term Wynns Coonawarra flavour and style spectrum.
