Why is there more than one price?

They’ve been making this since (the stellar) 1982, though it is only produced from the best years. It represents (less than) the top 1 percent of Wynns’ Coonawarra cabernet crop. It’s matured in all French oak – a range of new, one year and two year old – over 22 months.

John Riddoch was once a dense, heavy wine – but those days are long gone. It’s now a measured, medium-bodied cabernet in the classical mould. It’s both elegant and fully ripe. It tastes of bright, pure blackcurrant and spunky – almost flashy – creamy/spicy oak. There are notes of violet, olive tapanade and chocolate too and maybe a trace of dust. Tannin is not wrenching or excessive but it builds admirably given exposure to air. Good persistence. Class all over. High chance that it will rate higher given time to mature.
