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. Mulberry fruit with gentle nutty and black spice overtones.
95 Points - James Halliday
"A great exponent of this Aussie blend and in this vintage, pitch-perfect. A balanced interplay between bramble berries and plums, blood orange rind and juice with fennel and freshly rolled tobacco. The palate is textured bolstered by plush tannins with finely cut acidity and long on the finish."
96 Points - Huon Hooke
"Deep red/purple colour with a clean, leafy and berry-like aroma, while the palate is medium-bodied and elegantly framed, with mild but present tannins, overall softness and excellent balance. A lovely red wine combining intensity and harmony. It exudes class."
The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from V&A Lane have been important contributors to Wynns’ top wines for many years. However this area is also gaining a reputation for a great Shiraz and a marriage of the two varieties is a part of Wynns history, going back to its earliest blends.
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.
