Selected from the upper branches of Wynn's Coonawarra Estate's immense tree of cabernet, benefiting from all the investment made in reviving and/or replanting parts of lesser-performing plots. This is a top class Black Label, fully deserving this price. It is plush and pliant, varietal character oozing from its blackcurrant fruit, balanced tannins and oak. Drink to 2045.

Very deep purple colour; the bouquet young and fresh, the fruit aromas bright and reminding of blueberry, raspberry and mulberry. A hint of dried banana on the nose is the only inkling of oak that is given. A very elegant wine, intense and balanced, finely-honed and very long. Time will reveal it to be a superb vintage. Tremendous persistence and utterly gorgeous flavours. Drink 2017 - 2043.
