V&A Lane is a long, straight road that dissects Coonawarra’s famous terra rossa strip at its midpoint. Believed to have been surveyed in the late 1840s, the lane divides the original electorates of Victoria and Albert. Traditionally, it has been used as a landmark to separate northern and southern vineyards in Coonawarra, and is a prestigious and sought after locality for growing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
In 2008 two wines were made to honour Wynns’ prized vineyards along V&A Lane – a straight Shiraz and a Cabernet Shiraz blend. The distinctive fruit from these vineyards has a signature density and richness, the defining characteristic of this location along the Coonawarra strip.
