Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot Coonawarra South Australia
Black Label encapsulates all the elegance and distinction of Coonawarra wine, an enduring classic that drinks brilliantly while young. Cabernet Sauvignon provides the flavour, structure and length, Shiraz imparts a spicey complexity and richness. Merlot adds softness to a finely structured and supple wine, showing ripe plum and spicy fruit flavours combined with soft, understated oak. A smooth and flavoursome red enhanced by a judicious balance of the three varietal components, fashioned to be enjoyed today, innately suited to all good faire.
Wynns is located on the world famous strip of Terra rossa soils which produces wines of exceptional quality. Coonawarra is a relatively tiny, cigar shaped area, only fifteen kilometres long and two kilometres at its widest. Wynns are well positioned as the region's pre-eminent producer and largest single vineyard holder, retaining the best and longest established sites. The red sashed label once again represents the most exquisitly integrated accord of noble Coonawararra varietal grapes. The fragrantly fresh berry characters and regional mintyness are hallmarks of this much adored wine. Black Label is matured for twelve months in a selection of French and American oak barrels. Alcohol 13.5%
Dark opaque with vivid purple rim. An inviting succulent nose of bright red berries and dark blood plums, the generous lifted fruit aromas of Shiraz, combined with the darker spectrum of Cabernet and Merlot, marry well to add complexity and intrigue. A generous palate showing ripe cassis, blood plums and bramble fruits, multi dimensional with seamless length. Fine grained tannins are well integrated and supported by silky stylish oak, gentle acid structure completes the offering.
