Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache.

Wynns VA Lane Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Coonawarra South Australia
A pure Shiraz wine drawn from vines planted to historical grounds at the heart of Coonawarra. The sites date back to John Riddoch's original development of the district as a sheep grazing and fruit growing colony. The precious fruit from Wynns V & A Lane blocks exhibit a signature density and richness, the defining characteristics of this location along the cigar shaped Terra Rossa strip. The exceptional quality of Shiraz derived from this superior terroir moved the Wynns winemaking team to isolate and vinify the parcels into a single bottling.

Two limited edition wines have been made to highlight the fruit from the vineyards on V & A Lane, a long, straight road that dissects Coonawarra's famous Terra rossa strip at its midpoint. Originally surveyed in the late 1840s, the lane divides the original electorates of Victoria and Albert. Traditionally it has been used as a landmark to separate northern and southern vineyards, it is in itself, a prestigious, highly sought locality for growing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The vineyards along V & A Lane are amongst Wynns most prized viticultural assets. The finished wine is treated to seventeen months maturation in a combination of mostly new French and American oak barrels.
Deep crimson colour. An alluring perfume of black cherries and violet, plums and creamy French oak. Soft tannins coat the palate leaving a rich layering of supple blackberry and chocolate flavours in the mouth. Focussed fruit and savoury notes create a wine of great structure and texture, followed by a defined elegant finish. A superb articulation of Coonawarra Shiraz, a fitting tribute to the vineyards of V & A Lane.
