Wynns Coonawarra Estate Shiraz 2008
Wynns Coonawarra Estate was founded by pioneer John Riddoch,who planted vineyards in 1891,completing the estate's famous triple gabled winery in 1896. Melbourne Wine Merchants,Samuel and David Wynn purchased the estate in 1951,sharing a vision of producing full-bodied table wines of the highest calibre. The thin layer of rich,red 'Terra Rossa' topsoil, overlying porous limestone,provides ideal drainage conditions for vines. The 2008 shiraz is classic Coonawarra-exhibiting black pepper,mulberries and dark plums.
