Wynns The Banker Coonawarra Shiraz 2016Regular price $179.94 per carton Save $0.00
In the early 1920's, Wynns founder Samuel Wynn was saved from a ruthless property shark by the good nature of his bank manager who - without hesitation - rescued this struggling Polish immigrant from inevitable financial ruin. Wynn never forgot his bank manager's support (based on kindness and not financial logic) and remained loyal to his banker for the rest of his life.
Wynns Shiraz continues to be one of Australia's affordable favourites. Tucked away in the cellar of many budding wine collectors, Wynns Shiraz has all the structure and pedigree of some of its higher priced brothers and sisters. Rich varietal characters of plum, spice and pepper are woven through the minty regional notes and framed by fine, firm tannins.
Elegant and silky, with generous mulberry and blackberry notes. Delicate oak is used to match and support the fine palate structure, without dominating its distinctive cool climate character. The finish is drawn out with hints of cedar, nutmeg and fragrant bay leaf. This is a beautifully balanced wine ready to enjoy now or cellar in the medium term.
