Overview

Overview

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.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Concentrated mulberry and blackberry with hints of flinty shale and distilled blood orange.

Flavours and Palate

Co-fermentation creates a rich and textured style. The long time on skins takes the fruit into savoury and complex territory. Dark brambly fruits are layered with wet tobacco aniseed and peppery spice. Velvety tannin creates depth and is defined by crisp acidity and beautiful line, leaving the palate full and long with a smoky gravelly finish.

Viticulture

Viticulture

Vintage 2014 was ‘classic' Coonawarra, with lower yields and good quality from the long cool ripening post veraison; the resulting wines are finely structured and medium bodied.
