Wynns Black Label Shiraz 2010 Wynns Black Label Shiraz 2010

This wine is rich & complex, full to medium bodied with flavours of red berries, spice and chocolate. Dense and layered fruit is underpinned by tightly focused tannins on the finish. The spicy and floral notes persist onto the palate to give this wine a unique Coonawarra Shiraz flavour. This is excellent cool climate Shiraz of great fruit density and character.




VINEYARD
Coonawarra - which is an Aboriginal word meaning 'honeysuckle' - is an isolated region 450 kilometres away from Melbourne and 380 kilometers from Adelaide.It is renowned for its unique geological and climatic features - ideal for growing vines bearing the highest quality grapes.

Coonawarra's fame comes mostly from a freakish natural phenomenon called the terra rossa. Meaning literally 'red earth', the terra rossa is a low, cigar-shaped ridge of soil some 15 kilometres long and up to 1 kilometre wide.

Terra rossatopsoil is rich and free draining but thin - from just 5 centimetres to 100 centimetres deep. It is one of the best soils for growing vines in Australia; ideal for creating small, well coloured berries that develop in optimal sunlight. The end result is a yield of intensely flavoured grapes that are perfectly suited for making premium wine.

Like all great wine regions of the world, Coonawarra's climate is cool and marginal. It is South Australia's southernmost wine region, positioned just 80 kilometres from the chilly southern ocean and cold Antarctic winds.
