Winemaker Comments: Sue Hodder & Sarah Pidgeon
Variety Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Conditions 2016 A very warm and dry spring led to early flowering, veraison and harvest. The warm November temperatures were ideal for good berry set, necessitating extensive green harvest (thinning) for quality. The grape ripening months of February and March were influenced by a cold water “upwelling” off the coast, but overall, it was a warmer- than-average Coonawarra vintage. We describe our 2016 wines as being at the “fuller” end of our long-term Wynns Coonawarra flavour and style spectrum.
Colour Intense red/black with great depth and brightness.
Nose Pure, focused and refined. Beautifully balanced acidity and freshness ensure that this wine will live gracefully for 30 years
Palate Plush and juicy ripe cassis flavours combine with a mocha like creaminess from French oak. Beautifully textured. A fine tannin line frames powerful fruit, providing all the hallmarks of a great John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon for the cellar.
Peak Duration Enjoy on release, or cellar carefully for 10+ years. As a reference the inaugural release, the 1982, is still drinking beautifully.
Maturation 16 months in new (31%) and seasoned French oak hogheads (65%) and barriques (35%).
