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
John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon is made in small quantities from the best available fruit grown on the estate's extensive Cabernet Sauvignon plantings in the heart of the terra rossa soil It has become a definitive Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, made only in years when grapes of extraordinarily high quality are available, using less than 1% of the top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Nose: Pure, focused and refined. Beautifully balanced acidity and freshness ensure that this wine will live gracefully for 30 years.
Palate: Plush and juicy ripe cassis flavours combine with a mocha-like creaminess from French oak. Beautifully textured. A fine tannin line frames powerful fruit, providing all the hallmarks of a great John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon for the cellar.
