2016 'The Siding' Cabernet Sauvignon, Wynns, Coonawarra
Save £18 per case thanks to The Spectator Magazine
"The 2016 Wynns Coonawarra ‘The Siding’ Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on Coonawarra’s famous terra rossa soil on the Limestone Coast of South Australia, was a huge hit at our Wynns Coonawarra Winemaker Lunch last year. It’s gratifyingly rich and spicy with plenty of dark berry fruit and touches of mint, eucalyptus and herbs. And it’s so fresh, too, and instantly appealing."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
'The Siding' is the baby brother to the iconic Wynns 'Black Label' and is a wonderful entry point for this world-class cabernet-producing estate. The 2018 is already released but the estate offered us a parcel of the "enticingly mature" 2016 vintage. After tasting and receiving the thumbs up from the whole team, we have now shipped all we can.
Established 130 years ago by John Riddoch, one of the pioneers of Australian wine, Wynns put Coonawarra and its famous cabernet-friendly 'Terra Rossa' soils on the map in the 1950s.
2016 was another top notch vintage in Coonawarra, with the region enjoying a long, warm (but not scorching hot) summer, with cool nights and a cooler autumn; producing lovely balanced fruit, with none of the sweet, over-ripeness which can occur in hotter years. The nose is laden with concentrated dark, brambly fruit but with a youthful freshness and leads to a palate which is bursting with ripe blackberry and dark cherry. Delve a little deeper and youll uncover delicate hints of spice, cedar and the slightest touch of blueberry. Theres a soft, rounded grip on the finish with a balancing freshness. 'The Siding' is a slightly lighter, more vibrant style of Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon, which is very enjoyable now at five years old and will give much drinking pleasure over the next 2-3 years.
