Since 1952 this wine has long upheld Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s reputation as a producer of premium Coonawarra Shiraz. Typically, the Wynns Coonawarra Estate Shiraz has aromas reminiscent of ground black pepper, mulberry and raspberry, through to blackberry at the riper end of the spectrum. Oak is used to mature and increase the wine’s complexity, without dominating its distinctive cool-climate character. A medium bodied wine with a lengthy finish that will age gracefully in the tradition of the original Wynns Hermitage.

Expert Reviews

A staple, in food terms, is something routinely consumed as part of a diet or intake. These things of course vary from place to place, and change according to cultural backgrounds. Repertoire is also something to consider, but deviates a little from staple in that repertoires can be narrow or expand, and might contain staples that aren’t necessarily as essential but do form a basis of consumption. Anyway, Wynns Shiraz from 2013.

It’s a great release. One of the best I have seen in years. Even, medium-bodied, driving with firm, dark fruit, cuddled by subtle but nougat rich oak, a dimension of spice and a tug of tannins dragging the wine long and slender. Perfume is of ripe fruit dampened with musty cedar and a touch of earthiness. Not complex, but lots of structure, and a pleasing, ready-to-drink trim feel. Refreshing, lightly salty, tangy finish. Classy classic.

Winery Tasting Notes


Dark purple to a bright violet hue.


The nose is dark and concentrated with aromas of black fruits and spice. Dark cherries and blackberries are elevated with nutmeg, pepper and subtle violet florals.


The palate is deep and lush offering concentrated dark cherry and mulberry, peppered with elegant cedar and spice. The tannins are foirm and precise complementing the fruit through the mid palate, leaving the finish to be drawn out with hints of bay leaf and rhubarb.

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.
