Established by John Riddoch in 1896, Wynns was the first winery in Coonawarra. In 1951 Melbourne merchants Samuel and David Wynn purchased Riddoch's original vineyards and winery, renaming the property Wynns Coonawarra Estate. The Wynns family recognised the intrinsic qualities of Coonawarra wines, their richness and intensity of fruit character, and set out to build an independent identity for the region. They created the famous label that features John Riddoch's gabled winery, one of Australia's most recognizable buildings. An essentially Cabernet wine with a third of Shiraz, V & A Lane spent sixteen months in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels.
Deep crimson in colour. A ripe perfume of blackcurrant, violets and black mulberry balanced by a gentle underlay of cedar and creamy oak. Dark, dense Cabernet flavours and hints of spicy Shiraz frame a complex, savoury palate. Excellent concentration, structure and potential, delivering a seamless vibrant core of pristine dark berry nuances underpinned by silky smooth fruited tannins.
