Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Invitingly floral with lifted red roses and hints of black pepper against a background of pure red berries.

Flavours and Palate

Concentrated, crunchy berry fruit which is brooding yet enticing. Dusty French oak underlines juicy red fruit. As a young wine, we could already appreciate the silky fruit and texture that will develop further with time. These are the hallmarks of the great vintages of Michael Shiraz.

97 points Halliday Wine Companion

Halliday Wine Companion

"Convincing crimson-purple colour sends an early signal of a complete wine with a virtually limitless future thanks to admirable control of alcohol, starting in the vineyard and finishing in the winery. This is in turn expressed by red cherry (of itself unusual in Coonawarra), black cherry and spiced plum. The extensive new oak ageing means the wine needs a minimum of 7 years from vintage to reach a long plateau thereafter."

Viticulture

Viticulture

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 water “upwelling” off the coast, but overall, it was 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.
