Wine Of The Week
Wynns 2012 John Riddoch, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon $149.99
Dense, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with real poise – not at all heavy or clumsy. Rudolph Nureyev rather than Joe Frazier. Classic Cabernet flavours including cassis, cedar and violets are flattered by classy French oak. Surprisingly accessible but with obvious cellaring potential.
