In 1951 Samuel Wynn, who emigrated from Poland in 1913, with his son David, bought Riddoch's old property. The devotion and persistence of the Wynn dynasty in delivering benchmark Coonawarra Shiraz persists to this day. The finished wine is aged for a year in a combination of new and prior use French and American oak barrels.

Red fruits mesh with lingering spice notes to create a delicious and balanced Coonawarra Shiraz.
