An iconic Australian brand, which continues to stand the test of time and remain steadfast through multiple large company transitions & takeovers. It is ‘the original’ Coonawarra wine estate with an unparalleled history in the region, linking back to John Riddoch (the founder of the Coonawarra fruit colony in the late 1800’s). Wynns remains the largest vineyard holder by a ‘country mile’ of the prized Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra. A bold and extensive vineyard rejuvenation project started back in early 2000, has reaped true rewards for this famous Estate – both in terms of quality and consistency right across the range.
The ‘Black Label’ Cabernet continues to be a cornerstone wine in most wine collector’s cellars. The flagship wines of ‘Michael’ Shiraz and the ‘John Riddoch’ Cabernet still hold fort in the upper echelon of Australia’s prestige wines. The shared vision of winemaker Sue Hodder and Viticulturist Allen Jenkins has clearly improved the breadth and depth of the Wynns’s portfolio. Vintage dependent single vineyard wines released such ‘Glengyle’ and ‘Messenger’ and ‘Davis’ continue to impress. The addition of the ‘V & A Lane’ wines has added even greater levels of style, diversity and appeal to an already remarkable and authentic brand.
