WYNNS COONAWARRA ESTATE

"The distinct gabled winery built in 1896 by John Riddoch, the founder of the Coonawarra Fruit Colony, was once known as Chateau Comaum and was briefly home to the rare and wonderful Woodleys Treasure Chest Series wines produced during the late 1940s and very early 1950s. Noted Melbourne wine merchants Samuel and David Wynn purchased the winery and land in 1951. Top of the range is John Riddoch Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. It is not a single vineyard wine, rather a single varietal ultra-Cabernet Sauvignon using fruit from Wynns’ extensive Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. This wine, more than any other, has helped define Coonawarra. In a super vintage, this wine can look alarmingly like a 2nd or 3rd growth Bordeaux with its pure cassis aromas and cedary complexity. The wines are matured in a combination of new and old American and French oak for between 12 and 18 months depending on vintage" Andrew Caillard MW, Langton’s
