Wynns Cabernet Shiraz Merlot is a rich and complex wine with enhanced softness derived from the blending of these three classic red grape varieties. Its soft fruit plus judicious oak handling is well balanced and has created a wine perfect for current drinking or short-term cellaring, reflecting its regionality.

The first Wynns red blend (a Cabernet Sauvignon - Shiraz or "Hermitage as Shiraz was referred to then) was produced in 1969 making this "Red Stripe" red blend the 42nd vintage.

Expert Reviews

Blackcurrant, choc-licorice, lavender and some mint and vanilla. Medium bodied, ample but restrained fruit – a pleasing sense of dryness – ripe fine grained tannin and a long even finish. Subtle mineral character. Complexity of blend and quality of vintage at play. Rating 91 - Gary Walsh, Wine Front (MAY/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes


Bright, vibrant with purple hues.


An elegant combination of black and red fruits with hints of choc mint, that are the hallmark of the Wynns

Coonawarra Estate Cabernet, Shiraz, Merlot blend. Black olive and black currents dominate the nose, but are

subtlety supported by raspberry, rhubarb and well integrated oak.


The palate is filled with vibrant black olive and choc mint Cabernet notes, and subtle Shiraz and Merlot notes

of red liquorice and blood plums. Well integrated oak tannins add elegant structure and complexity. Resulting

in a bright, well balanced wine, which is very versatileand suits many different foods.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1891 the famous triple gabled winery and surrounding vineyards were built and planted by John Riddoch and called the Chateau Camoum. Riddoch’s vineyards are the core of today’s Wynns Coonawarra Estate, with his winery, essentially unchanged, forming the centrepiece of the operation.

Following John Riddoch’s death in 1901 the Coonawarra Estate languished for 50 years until 1951 when Samuel Wynn and Co, the Melbourne-based wine makers and merchants, purchased the winery and vineyards.

After much hard work, over the next 30 years Wynns gradually increased its holdings in the Coonawarra and by 1981 was the largest grower in the district with 440 hectares under vine.

Coonawarra's fame comes mostly from a freakish natural phenomenon called the terra rossa. Meaning literally 'red earth', the terra rossa is a low, cigar-shaped ridge of soil some 15 kilometres long and up to 1 kilometre wide.

Coonawarra - which is an Aboriginal word meaning 'honeysuckle' - is an isolated region 450 kilometres away from Melbourne and 380 kilometres from Adelaide. Coonawarra is renowned for its unique geological and climatic features - ideal for growing vines bearing the highest quality grapes.

Like all great wine regions of the world, Coonawarra's climate is cool and marginal. It is South Australia's southernmost wine region, positioned just 80 kilometres from the chilly southern ocean and cold Antarctic winds. The vines are assured a long, cool ripening period that builds up the intensity of flavours slowly in the grape and ensures a balanced acidity. The resulting wines will always be among Australia's finest for their richness, intensity, flavour and longevity.
