Wynns Coonawarra Estate V&A Lane Cabernet Shiraz

Distinguished, coiled and driven, this is a blend of impeccable structure, fragrant finesse and enduring longevity. It’s restrained, gently and alluringly floral, with rose hip notes and wonderful purity of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit and pepper of focused purity. Fine chalk mineral tannin texture is particularly pronounced in V&A Lane, a signature of this part of Coonawarra. 2012 represents the pinnacle of V&A Lane to date, testimony to fanatical, microscopic attention in the vineyard and small batch focus in the winery. $48 at Langton’s, Aussie wines, No Frills and Wine List Australia.
