Available this week at the Canberra Qantas Business lounge, this young Australian wine is a limited release from the famous South Australian winery Wynns.
A berry and plum nose leads to a earthy medium bodied palate, with the Shiraz shining through.
A fresh dry aftertaste lingers between each sip, reminding one of having just finished a dessert adorned with cinnamon.
This 2010 wine would be worth saving and opening around 2015 where the Cabernet would boom through, and the Shiraz having started maturing in the bottle.

This wine, from renown Coonawarra maker Wynns, was opened for a family dinner of marinated roast beef with Moroccan spiced
It proved to be delightful drinking with the wine probably nearing its peak. A light purple
colour promised a soft easy on the palate red, with a good nose of fruit and only the
slightest hint of oak. It had a smooth finish which had us asking for more, please.
All told an excellent wine for dinner or simply drinking on its own and also good for all
foods even Asian cuisine.
