Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
Inaugurally crafted in vintage 1954 and widely known as Black Label, Wynns Cabernet is produced from the top pick of estate grown fruit, it has established a reputation for displaying excellent varietal and regional Coonawarra charm. A Cabernet Sauvignon of stature, structure and style, a perennial favourite around the auction circuit, Black Label is one of Australia's most collectable wines. It consistently delivers a peerless experience as an early drinking Coonawarra Cabernet while offering splended potential for extended cellaring.
The average age of vine, called upon to make contributions for Black Label, is a courtly thirty to forty years, these seasoned old veterans yield a more traditionally Aussie style of Cabernet Sauvignon, very much in the fashion of the 1980s. Crafted from harvests of tiny, redolent, impenetrably black hued grapes, parcels are collated from the choice of Wynns estate vineyards, proven to be worthy of the long lived and enduring Black Label style. Following vinification and malolactic, components are transferred to a selection of seasoned and new oak barriques, hogsheads and larger format oak vats for an extended, fourteen months maturation. Alcohol 13.5%

Fragrant, bright and pure palate exhibiting blackcurrants, coffee and violet notes. A core of dark fruit runs through the palate, defining Black Label as a powerful expression of ripe Cabernet Sauvignon.
