Wynn’s Coonawarra Estate V&A Lane Cabernet Shiraz 2022


A rainy day in Coonawarra with the concentrated scent of the Australian bush heavy in the air. That’s the aroma that greets the drinker – the earth, the soil, the bush, dried herbs and black and red fruits – simply sensational. The great Australian red blend is in familiar territory. Liquorice, chocolate, spice and dried herbs swirl around black and red fruits flowing easily to a long finish. Smoky cedary oak remains a well-integrated constant. This is a wine that that never raises its voice, never moves out of step and is defined by  silky but firm tannins and generous flavour. Cellaring will probably be the last thing on your mind when it is tasted, but it’s a worthy option. It will cellar a treat.
