Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy on release or cellar carefully for up to 15 years
On the nose
Mulberry, blackberry and blood orange with subtle nutty and black spice notes.
On the palate
Co-fermentation of the two varieties creates a layered and harmonious style, with unique tannin structure. Extra time on skins after ferment takes the naturally rich fruit into savoury and complex territory. Dark brambly fruits are layered with black tea, aniseed and peppery spices. Velvety tannin creates depth and is defined by crisp acidity and beautiful line, leaving the palate full and long with a smoky gravelly finish.
Product Notes
The Cabernet vineyards from V&A Lane have long been looked to for their depth and character as important contributors to Wynns top wines. The inspiration for the V&A Lane Cabernet Shiraz comes from the Wynns ‘claret story’ that goes back to the 1950s, where wines were made to a style rather than being about exact proportions. For this modern version, the grapes are harvested on the same day and then co-fermented.
