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.

Vintage Conditions 2015
A warm spring with even flowering and set, giving good yields. A mild summer, and long ripening period delivered full fruit flavours and balanced acidity. An outstanding Coonawarra vintage.
Glossy deep purple
Multilayered and intense aromas, elegant and attractive, with the appearance of ripe dark fruits dark cherry and blackberry notes, and hints of complex spice.
Impressively balanced and soft with a feeling of ripe fruit, black pepper, dry leaves and soft acidity. Polished, fine French oak stretches out the back palate and enhances the dark and brambly notes. The tannins are ‘melted’, perfectly ripe, and the finish is long, smooth, fragrant and juicy.
The milestone 60th vintage of the black label Cabernet has 60 years of ageability to live up to and should proudly stand the test. Enjoy on release or cellar carefully for up to 20 years.

Salmon is a full flavoured and succulent fish, and a medium bodied, textured wine like black label Cabernet perfectly cuts the richness and enhances the intense flavours and textures.
