About this winery

At Wynns, the winemaking style is a testament to the heritage of their vineyards in Coonawarra. Coonawarra’s international reputation comes from regionally-specific terra rossa soil.

Tasting notes

Classic aromatics of cassis, violet and forest floor, accentuated by subtle dried herb perfumes of lavender and white sage. Fine, long and generous, layered with dark rich notes of blackberry, cherry, plum, moss and earth. The wine is enhanced with soft but succulent acid, fine cedar notes and elegant malleable tannin, finishing with a hint of thyme.

Viticultural notes

Wynns Coonawarra Estate was the first winery to be established in Coonawarra by John Riddoch in 1896. The winery is located on the world-famous strip of 'Terra Rossa' soil that produces fruit with exceptional quality. The wine is named after the railway siding - a local landmark that played a defining role during Coonawarra's early settlement. Completed in 1898, 'The Siding' was responsible for transporting around 600 hogsheads of wine a year to Adelaide. The Siding delivers varietal and regional character that is approachable on release, yet will still develop with short to medium-term cellaring.
