James Halliday

Another wine from Wynns and the '12 vintage that shows a significant change in winemaking direction, with the alcohol of 13.5%. While the Woodley Treasure Chest wines were basically shiraz, none wholly cabernet sauvignon, this wine has a structure those wines had in their early maturity. What is most interesting here is the early development on the palate of savoury flavours and firm tannins, yet allowing the fruit to maintain its line through to the all-important finish, where balance is not in question.

Redcurrant and blackcurrant, almost raspberry accented, whiff of aniseed perfume, light mocha oak and a little tobacco. Medium bodied only – lithe and light – firm pull of open weave fine grained tannin and a crunchy fresh finish. Thickens up as it takes the air but at no stage does it become heavy. All just so. Great release, and as they say in the classics, has years up it.
