Deep crimson red, with a dark core.Concentrated and layered, expressing classical violets and sweet spice. Rich cassis is the central theme, effortlessly lifted by sage, nutmeg and bay leaf notes. Lush blackberries are infused with aromatic leather cream and spice characters. Framed by fine powdery tannin, the wine is woven tightly together by defined and integrated oak. The lasting impression is of a complex and focussed wine, centered on dark fruits.
First produced in 1954, and widely known as Black Label, Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has established a reputation for displaying excellent varietal and regional characteristics. The wine is produced from only the top 20-25% of Cabernet fruit available from Wynns Coonawarra Estate. A wine of style and stature, and a perennial favourite in auction circles, the Black Label is one of Australia’s most collectable wines and Australia’s benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon. It consistently delivers the potential for medium to long-term cellaring, with the average vineyard age for Wynns Black Label over 35 years.
The cool 2011 season saw a much smaller quantity of this important benchmark wine being produced, from our traditional old vineyards. True to its ideals, the 56th vintage of this wine catalogues a remarkably cool season for Coonawarra.
