Wynns Coonawarra Estate Black Label Shiraz

A new Black Label has been born. A marketing stunt to trade off the fifty-five vintage success of Black Label Cabernet? The truth is far more compelling. Investment in smaller fermenters has allowed more batches to be kept separate at Wynns, accounting for a growing portfolio of ever more detailed styles. And the gap between Wynns’ $25 Estate Shiraz and $130 Michael has always been begging to be filled with a regional blend capable of absorbing declassified Michael and any other special parcels outside V&A Lane. The answer is an impressively appealing, juicy and fruit-focused style. The allure of the vintage is on show in flamboyant blackberry and blueberry fruits, supported by milk chocolate oak, lingering black pepper and beautifully refined, finely textured tannins. Give it time to build complexity. 1 August 2012 release.
