2016 – one of the great Coonawarra Vintages
A very warm and dry spring led to early flowering, veraison and harvest. Warm November temperatures were ideal for good berry set, necessitating extensive green harvest (thinning) for quality. The grape ripening months of February and March were influenced by a cold water “upwelling” off the coast, but overall it was a warmer-than-average Coonawarra vintage. 2016 wines are described as being at the “fuller” end of our long-term Wynns Coonawarra flavour and style spectrum.
