Wynns Michael Coonawarra Shiraz, South Australia, 2016
Only produced in the best vintages from Wynn's highest rated vineyards.
2016 Vintage Conditions:
A very warm and dry spring led to early flowering, veraison and harvest. The warm November temperatures were ideal for good berry set, necessitating extensive green harvest (thinning) for quality. The grape ripening months of February and March were influenced by a cold water “upwelling” off the coast, but overall, it was a warmer- than-average Coonawarra vintage. We describe our 2016 wines as being at the “fuller” end of our long-term Wynns Coonawarra flavour and style spectrum.
"Deep crimson. Intense blackberry pastille, violet aromas with underlying bramble, spicy notes. Richly concentrated wine with deep set inky, blackberry, blackcurrant fruits, persistent fine loose knit chocolaty, ground coffee textures and underlying savoury vanilla cedar nuances. Finishes graphite firm with long fine chocolaty plume. Generous and supple with lovely density, richness and vigour. Should develop extremely well, Keep and cellar. 2024-2040" Rated 97 points, Andrew Caillard MW
