Wine Summary Image

Wynns Coonawarra Estate was the first winery to be established in Coonawarra, by John Riddoch in 1896. The winery is located on the world famous strip of 'Terra Rossa' soil that produces fruit of an exceptionally high quality, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon.

First produced in 1954 and widely known as 'Black Label', Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has established a reputation for displaying excellent varietal and regional characteristics. The wine is produced from only the top 20-25% of Cabernet fruit available from Wynns Coonawarra Estate.

A wine of style and stature and a perennial favourite in auction circles, the 'Black Label' is one of Australia's most collectable wines. It consistently delivers the potential for medium to long-term cellaring.

The average vineyard age for Wynns Cabernet is 33 years. 2008 is the 53rd vintage of this wine.

Expert Reviews

The wine seems to have been around forever, and so it has: this is the 53rd vintage. It is barrel-aged in French oak, 31% new, and comes from the top 25% of the available cabernet resources of Wynns. It is rich and luscious, with blackcurrant and dark chocolate aromas and flavours, the palate lengthened and strengthened by ripe yet fine tannins. Rating 94 - Drink by 2025 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2010)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1891 the famous triple gabled winery and surrounding vineyards were built and planted by John Riddoch and called the Chateau Camoum. Riddoch’s vineyards are the core of today’s Wynns Coonawarra Estate, with his winery, essentially unchanged, forming the centrepiece of the operation.

Following John Riddoch’s death in 1901 the Coonawarra Estate languished for 50 years until 1951 when Samuel Wynn and Co, the Melbourne-based wine makers and merchants, purchased the winery and vineyards.

After much hard work, over the next 30 years Wynns gradually increased its holdings in the Coonawarra and by 1981 was the largest grower in the district with 440 hectares under vine.

Coonawarra's fame comes mostly from a freakish natural phenomenon called the terra rossa. Meaning literally 'red earth', the terra rossa is a low, cigar-shaped ridge of soil some 15 kilometres long and up to 1 kilometre wide.

Coonawarra - which is an Aboriginal word meaning 'honeysuckle' - is an isolated region 450 kilometres away from Melbourne and 380 kilometres from Adelaide. Coonawarra is renowned for its unique geological and climatic features - ideal for growing vines bearing the highest quality grapes.

Like all great wine regions of the world, Coonawarra's climate is cool and marginal. It is South Australia's southernmost wine region, positioned just 80 kilometres from the chilly southern ocean and cold Antarctic winds. The vines are assured a long, cool ripening period that builds up the intensity of flavours slowly in the grape and ensures a balanced acidity. The resulting wines will always be among Australia's finest for their richness, intensity, flavour and longevity.

There’s at least a dozen wines I should be writing up tonight, except I’m more than a bit knackered, so I’ll concentrate on doing something that’ll bring home the bacon. So to paraphrase Winston – “Never in the field of Australian wine has one been owned by so many, for so few dollars, to give so much”. It’s a war out there at the moment, after all. And just look at all our Wynns Cabernet via Wine Finder.

Cassis, vanilla cocoa and mint with an undercurrent of rich rolling tobacco. It’s medium to full bodied with a beautifully thick tannic texture that rolls through the mouth gently and surely with no assault from oak, alcohol or acidity – just the firm confidence of quality ripe fruit and positive oak. Finishes with a slick of creamy tannin and a pinch of dried herb. It’s a fulsome ripe year Coonawarra, much like 2005 or 1998, perky, fighting fit and ready for action now, yet age shall not weary it. A Monty for the cellar.Rating 94+, Drink 2014 - 2028+ Gary Walsh, Wine Front (AUG/2010)

A long-term, deeply flavoured and profoundly structured red of depth and balance. Scented with a violet-like perfume of cassis, mulberries and fresh, gamey cedar/vanilla oak backed by dusty nuances of dried herbs, it's supple, elegant and deeply flavoured. Dripping with deeply ripened cabernet fruit with gamey, meaty and earthy undertones, it's tightly complemented by fine oak and supported by firm, fine and drying tannins. Rating 94 - Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual

Black Label is back on form after THAT vineyard makeover with chainsaws a decade ago! For Coonawarra cabernet, this is exact: crunchy blackcurrants, fresh liquorice sticks, balanced oak, fine acidity, seamless tannins. It’s got more than a decade of Easters left in it yet! Rating 93 - Drink 2018 - 2023 - Tyson Stelzer, www.tysonstelzer.com.au
