Classy Coonawarra

Wynns Coonawarra Estate V & A Lane Cabernet Shiraz 2015, Coonawarra, AUD $60

Vine–cloaked V & A Lane is said to be the dividing line between ‘north’ and ‘south’ Coonawarra. This is a classy red with clean, aromatic berry and leaf aromas. It’s medium-bodied, elegantly framed, the tannins soft and mild but quite evident. A fine red combining intensity and harmony. (Screwcap)
