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, but Shiraz was the first grape to grow here and Wynns were one of the first to do it.
In the line-up is their iconic ‘White label’ (it’s more light grey in our opinion, but hey let’s not be fussy) Estate Shiraz. Regarded as one of the most trusted value for money Aussie Shiraz labels year in, year out and the 2015 vintage sure as hell doesn’t disappoint (after all, James Halliday scored this region 9/10 for the 2015 vintage).
A Double Gold medal winner on the wine show circuit across the ditch and given an impressive 91/100 by Huon Hooke (Master of Wine), who said “A peppery spicy aroma, a savoury palate and smooth texture. The fruit is bright and bold, fresh and clean, with understated tannins and a touch of elegance.”
