Wynns Coonawarra Estate Michael Shiraz 2016

Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s best-of-vintage Shiraz and is named after David Wynn’s young son. The fruit used for this wine comes from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is only made in years when the best quality fruit is available. The wine is a legend of the Australian wine story with good examples of the 1955 Michael offering an outstanding experience. Matured for 14 months in seasoned oak the Michael Shiraz offers invitingly floral aromas with lifted red roses and hints of black pepper against a background of pure red berries. On the palate concentrated, crunchy berry fruit which is brooding yet enticing. Dusty French oak underlines juicy red fruit. As a young wine, you can already appreciate the silky fruit and texture that will develop further with time. These are the hallmarks of another great vintages of Michael Shiraz.
