For those familiar with the wines of Coonawarra, the iconic Wynns brand and the value that their wines represent is well known. This entry level wine from Wynns is a great introduction to the region and a solid weeknight sip. Their Chardonnay is also worth seeking out. For those seeking truly exceptional wines I would check out Wynns Icon and Single Vineyard series.
Many wineries in the region struggled to make exceptional wine in 2011 due to a cold growing season which made ripeness hard to achieve. While this wine was quite enjoyable and displayed a sense of terroir, great value can predominantly be found in the best vintages. I would recommend checking out the 2005, 2010, 2012 and 2015 vintages.
Coming from the infamous Terra Rossa soils in Coonawarra this Cabernet Shiraz blend provides a great balance of sweet and savoury notes. A soft elegant wine with notes of Raspberries, red currants, creme de cassis, leather, mint and anise. Had the chance to try any other great Coonawarra wines? I’d love to hear about it.
