Established in 1972, the Wynns Coonawarra Estate Harold Vineyard is a dry grown, nine hectare block, set in the heart of some of the best terra rossa soils in Coonawarra. Planted entirely to cabernet sauvignon, the Harold Vineyard produced such an exceptional crop in 2001, it was decided to release the first bottling of this unique, single vineyard wine to celebrate the 50th vintage of cabernet sauvignon at Wynns Coonawarra Estate.
The resultant wine is an opulent, full-bodied cabernet sauvignon with cassis and cedar wood aromas leading to a generous palate of dark mint chocolate and sage, complemented by 18 months maturation in new French oak. Supple tannins support the deep, long finish to produce a densely structured wine that will reward careful cellaring.
