They go a bit potty across the ditch every year when Wynns Coonawarra Estate launch their annual release of wines. They even called it ‘Wynnsday’, cheesy or what! The Coonawarra (Aboriginal for ‘honeysuckle’) is a region from South Australia famous for its world class Cabernet. Wynns were one of the first to plant the stuff in the Coonawarra.
Their Black Label range is the flash stuff. Age worthy wines crafted to last the test of time in your cellar, usually going for in the region of $30-40 a bottle. This is a stellar price for some seriously classy Aussie Cabernet!
This stunning 2015 vintage got a massive Gold medal score of 96/100 in James Halliday’s Wine Companion. Summing it up quite simply they said – “This is a top class Black Label, fully deserving this price. It is plush and pliant, varietal character oozing from its blackcurrant fruit, balanced tannins and oak..”
Drink now or cellar for another 15 years yet!
