Overview

Overview

Wynns is the Coonawarra's most recognised wine producer.  With substantial vineyard holdings on the famous thin strip of terra rossa soil, the wines are benchmarks for the region and lauded for both their quality and flavour.

Led by one of Australia's best-known winemakers, Sue Hodder has been guiding vintages at Wynns for over 23 years.  In 2010, her partnership with viticulturalist Allen Jenkins, was recognised when they were awarded joint recipients of the Gourmet Traveller WINE’s Winemaker of the Year.

The Siding is named after the railway siding - a local landmark that played a defining role during Coonawarra's early settlement.  

"the aim of this wine is to deliver a leading affordable Cabernet Sauvignon, showcasing exceptional varietal and regional characteristics of red cherry, mint and dark berry flavours, while an array of gentle tannins will further reward from short to medium term cellaring" - Sue Hodder.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Engaging ripe cherries and brambles are elevated by savoury lavender and spice.

Flavours and Palate

Youthful and alluring, with a plush, almost bright texture.  Dark berries are enveloped in cedar, earthy and spice. 

 

The structure is classic Cabernet, malleable tannins follow the contours of the palate creating a seamless profile, balanced with fresh acid.

Bronze 2019 Perth Royal Wine Awards

"I’m seldom impressed by redesigns of labels that have history on their side. This is an exception, and it also hits home runs in the mouth notwithstanding a challenging vintage. It is a pure rendition of blackcurrant varietal fruit, hints of mulberry and mint attesting to its region."
