Wynns Coonawarra Michael Shiraz 2021


This is Wynns prestige Shiraz release, Michael was David Wynn’s young son and this is a tribute to him. It is based on the legendary 1955 Michael Hermitage, a one-off Shiraz wine that is still considered one of our most iconic wines. From a brilliant vintage for Coonawarra, this is a stunning wine. Opaque maroon, the structure is impeccable with excellent balance, bright acidity, amazing length, ever-so-fine tannins and a seamlessness and seductiveness which runs the length. The nose exhibits notes of spices, even offering a flick of white pepper, as well as vanilla and nutmeg, coffee grinds, blackberries, beef stock and bay leaves. Still very youthful, expect the wine (and the score) to improve over the coming years. The wine is a fifteen to twenty year proposition.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
