Wynns Coonawarra Estate Shiraz 2010, Coonawarra, South Australia, Australia
This wine is 100% Shiraz grapes with maturation in a mixture of French and American oak for 10 months and alcohol coming in at 14%.
Opaque ruby in color, this Shiraz was a bit shy on the nose with aromas of red and black fruit, damp earth, smoke, spices and subtle eucalyptus. On the mouthfeel, medium-bodied, concentrated and robust but not overdone with mild acidity and silky tannins. This finish is pleasant, medium length and very smooth. This is an elegant, cool climate Shiraz and another excellent value red wine from Wynns Coonawarra Estate. Very enjoyable, score 89 points.
