Summertime is a spectacular time of year to visit wine country. If you’re planning a weekend away in the area, then Wynns Coonawarra Estate is a must visit.
Wander the historic triple gabled grounds and discover what our founder Scottish pioneer John Riddoch first set his sights on; book an experience to blend your very own wine; or simply sit down and relax with a glass of wine and a platter of cheese outside as you enjoy the perfect weather. We’re open throughout the holiday season.
Here are two of our favourite wines on tasting this summer:
First made in 1962 and has gained a reputation as one of Australia's most consistent, and representative expressions of the variety. This vintage has a full-flavoured palate with lemon and lime characters balanced by spring florals and soft, natural acidity. Perfect for drinking now.
2016 Coonawarra Chardonnay
Displaying excellent varietal character, a direct benefit from the long ripening season of Coonawarra’s cool southerly climate. The stone fruit flavours are balanced by soft acidity and an underlying complex barrel ferment characters brining together an elegant, beautifully balanced Chardonnay.
