Wynns Coonawara Estate Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2001 Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of ripe plum and mocha with concentrated fruit flavors and finely textured, velvety tannins. Produced from only the top 25% of available cabernet grapes, this wine has a long-established reputation for displaying excellent Coonawarra cabernet varietal definition and exceptionally high wine quality. When young, the wine is redolent of cassis and other red berry fruits with a strong background of charry oak. Ground coffee, dark chocolate and mint descriptors are often used. With bottle age, cedar, cigar box and new leather characters enrich the developed bouquet.

They created the famous label that has made John Riddoch's winery one of Australia's best known buildings. Read less
