Overview

Overview

Wynns Coonawarra Estate was the first winery to be established in Coonawarra by John Riddoch in 1896. The winery is located on the world famous strip of 'Terra Rossa' soil that produces fruit with exceptional quality. The wine is named after the railway siding - a local landmark that played a defining role during Coonawarra's early settlement. Completed in 1898, 'The Siding' was responsible for transporting around 600 hogsheads of wine a year to Adelaide.

The Siding delivers varietal and regional character that is approachable on release, yet will still develop with short to medium-term cellaring.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Classic aromatics of cassis, violet and forest floor, accentuated by subtle dried herb perfumes of lavender and white sage.

Flavours and Palate

Fine, long and generous, layered with dark rich notes of blackberry, cherry, plum, moss and earth. The wine is enhanced with soft but succulent acid, fine cedar notes and elegant malleable tannin, finishing with a hint of thyme. One for your Sunday lamb roast.

Coonawarra, South Australia

Coonawarra, on South Australia’s Limestone Coast, is a flat, isolated region almost mid-point between Adelaide and Melbourne. The area enjoys a cool maritime climate - similar to that of Bordeaux - and is renowned for its unique terra rossa soil. Rich, rust coloured soils… crimson sunburnt faces… magenta sunsets: this is red wine country! While Coonawarra is famous for its rich, minty Cabernet, the area also produces Shiraz and Merlot and surprisingly good Chardonnay and Riesling.

Vintage Conditions

A warm season with moderate yields delivering full fruit flavours and balanced acidity.

Sue Hodder - Senior Winemaker

Sue Hodder is one of Australia's best-known winemakers and this year celebrates her 27th vintage with Wynns – making wine from wonderful, expressive fruit grown in the heart of the terra rossa. Sue commenced her career as a viticulturist and believes her early viticultural training – assessing vines, analysing mature fruit and tasting the finished wine – gave her an invaluable insight into the importance of the vineyard in quality winemaking.

Sue brings valuable experience with vintages in other noted wine regions around the world and has judged extensively in Regional, National and International wine shows. She is the recipient of many accolades including GT Wines ‘Winemaker of the Year’ in 2010 (with viticulturist Allen Jenkins); and most recently ‘Winemaker of the Year’ (with Sarah Pidgeon) at the 2016 ASVO awards.
