This year's Wynns Coonawarra Estate Cabernet Shiraz Merlot is a fine example of the style. Wynns Cabernet Shiraz Merlot is a rich and complex wine with enhanced softness derived from the blending of these three classic red grape varieties. Soft fruit plus judicious oak handling have created a wine perfect for current drinking or short-term cellaring. The 2010 Cabernet Shiraz Merlot is a balanced and approachable wine, providing a true reflection of 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.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright, vibrant purples, with vivid purple hue.
Concentrated black berry fruits, subtle choc mint, liquorish and cassis. Elegant hints of oak add delicate
Rich black berry fruits make the palate luscious and fruit filled. Subtle savoury Cabernet notes provide structure
and a balanced line of acid that runs the length of the palate. Complex, balanced and youthful.
A joy on release, this wine can be cellared in the shortterm for three to five years.
