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.
