First made in 1982, the John Riddoch cabernet sauvignon was conceived as a flagship wine for Wynns. John Riddoch himself was a true visionary. Amongst his many achievements are the building of the Wynns gabled winery and the establishment of the Coonawarra fruit colony. This wine is made in small quantities from the best available fruit grown on the estate's extensive cabernet plantings. It has become a definitive Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon, made only in years when grapes of extraordinarily high quality are available, using less than one per cent of the top cabernet grapes. Concentrated, intricate aromatics of opulent black fruits, fine cedary French oak and complex aromatics, merging with notes of olive and cassis. Majestic palate, filled with defined and concentrated flavours of cassis and olive, underpinned by delicate perfumed spice, cedar notes. Firm, chalky tannin, vibrant acidity enhance the structure and texture.
