Overview

Overview

Since 1952 this wine has long upheld Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s reputation as a producer of premium Coonawarra Shiraz.

Typically the Wynns Coonawarra Estate Shiraz has aromas of ground black pepper, berry and distinctive floral notes. Delicate oak is used to match and support the fine palate structure, without dominating its distinctive, cool-climate character. A mediumbodied wine with a lingering finish that will age gracefully in the tradition of the original Wynns Hermitage wine.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Rich aromas of dark cherry and raspberry, combine with floral and pepper aromas. Infused with nutmeg, ground black pepper and distinctive white floral aromatics which speak of the cool climate origins of this wine.

Flavours and Palate

Elegant and silky, with generous mulberry notes. Delicate oak is used to match and support the fine palate structure, without dominating its distinctive cool climate character. The finish is drawn out with hints of cedar, nutmeg and fragrant bay leaf. This is a beautifully balanced wine ready to enjoy now or cellar in the medium term. This calls for smoky grilled meats and veggies.

25 GREAT REDS $30 & UNDER

"This release is good: it smells and tastes of sweet ripe fruit, but it's a little firmer than usual. It ropes in peppercorn and clove flavours with sweet raspberry and plum, and then ties them all tidily together with well-integrated tannin. It works. Even better, it shouldn't be too hard to find it on discount."

James Halliday

"This is another very good release. It tastes of raspberry and plums with clove and sweet spice notes threaded through. It's medium in weight and well balanced...."

Viticulture

Viticulture

A cool growing season with late season rain led to fresh and crisp flavours in the white wines, and red fruit and spice notes in the red wines.
