Expert Reviews

Ned Goodwin

93 Points

A fascinating wine, with the lowish alcohol (12.8%) and reductive handling, brushed with a sensitive application of oak, giving a nudge and a wink to fashionable regions, particularly those in Victoria. Blueberry, iodine, violet and olive paste notes are strung along a beam of peppery acidity and clove-doused tannins, moderate but palpably grippy. This is a restrained, sophisticated expression.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lifted cranberry, orange blossom and fresh pastry notes.

Palate

Bright cherry and blueberry complements more savoury elements of stalks, pastry, and spice. Cloudlike tannin gives an expansive tone, and guides the pure fruits though to the lingering crushed pepper and cinnamon on the finish. This is an early ripening, early harvested wine. The resulting freshness and brightness with moderate alcohol but many layers of flavour has become a signature of the V&A Lane.

Cellaring Potential

Peak Drinking: Now to 2031.

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.

Coonawarra shiraz at 12.8% alc. Grown on vineyards with frontage to V&A Lane in Coonawarra.

Fine fingers of tannin. Tangy acidity. A pure, even flow of red cherry and plum-like flavour, helped along by fennel and sweet cedarwood. Elegance in vinous form. South Australian shiraz painted in delicious watercolours.

Huon Hooke

91 Points

Good colour depth and hue. Earthy, spicy shiraz aromas. Soft, balanced, the tannins fine-grained and positive, contributing structure. Long finish. A fine, elegant wine.
