Overview

Overview

Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate's best-of-vintage Shiraz. The first Michael (then named Michael Hermitage) was a one-off make from
the 1955 vintage, made after proprietor David Wynn noticed the outstanding quality of the wine from two particular barrels and ordered them to be bottled
separately.

This wine - named after Wynn's young son - is a legend of the Australian wine story with good examples of the 1955 Michael Hermitage still offering an outstanding wine experience. Revived with the superb 1990 vintage, the fruit used for this wine comes from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is made only in years when the grapes are of extraordinarily high quality.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Intense notes of blueberry and strawberry, with darker complexing hints of black cherry, plum and lifted dandelion florals.

Flavours and Palate

Subtle notes of black cherry provide layered depth and complexity. A red fruit thread creates an intensely bright core.

Soft framing powdery tannins, restrained nutty oak and hints of ginger add elegant savoury notes and the promise of silky elegance as this wine ages.

Viticulture

Viticulture

Generous winter-spring rainfall replenished the vines and the aquifer. Cold flowering in early December moderated yields. A long cool ripening post veraison resulted in finely structured and medium bodied wines.
