David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness. The legacy of Eden Valley vineyards planted by Wynn in the 1960s & 1970s, incorporating significant old rootstock and extinct European clones, remains a bespoke choice for adherents of the abstruse, old guard in Australian..

Regular vineyard assessments leading up to harvest ensure that Shiraz is harvested when the flavours are at their optimal intensity. Fruit is all hand picked and treated to ten days of cold soak, a parcel is included as whole bunches. A course of daily hand plunges in a small, open fermenter release the tannins and infuse flavour. Upon completion, the ferments are filled to a well seasoned, larger format, four tonnes oak cask for a judicious term of maturation.
Deep purple. Vibrant rose petal and white pepper perfumes, earthyness and cacao. Supple tannins in support of a seamless palate, a sensory adventure of fresh raspberry fruit characters, the savouryness of black pepper, chocolate chips and mint, a balance of freshness and acidity, persistence, elegance and sound structure through to the finish.
