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, and 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 good Shiraz armed to the teeth with spicy, dark fruit flavours that’ll woo any old school Aussie red lover!
Backed by a huge score of 96/100 from Aussie’s number one wine critic James Halliday, who said “medium to full-bodied palate; oak and tannins provide the framework for a wine with a very long life ahead.”
How long we hear you ask? Well let’s say you could grab a case now and drink one each year until around 2040!
