Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s best-of-vintage Shiraz. Named after David Wynn’s young son, the fruit used for this wine comes from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is only made in years when the best quality fruit is available. The wine is a legend of the Australian wine story with good examples of the 1955 Michael offering an outstanding experience.

Palate - On the palate, the wine unfolds with richness and intensity. Ripe black fruit flavours take centre stage, with black cherry joining the ensemble. The velvety texture is complemented by well-integrated tannins, providing structure without overwhelming the palate. There is a pleasant interplay between the fruit sweetness and a nuanced peppery note, showcasing the classic Shiraz characteristics. The finish is long and satisfying, echoing the dark fruit notes, and leaving a lingering impression of subtle spices. As the flavours gradually fade, a touch of mocha and a hint of black pepper linger, inviting another sip.

Nose - The aromatic profile is bold and enticing, with an immediate burst of dark fruits. Blackberry and blueberry dominate the forefront, accompanied by subtle hints of ripe plum. A layer of spice such as cinnamon and a touch of clove, add depth to the aromatic complexity. The nose is rounded off with a delicate suggestion of vanilla, a result of careful French oak integration.

Perfect Pairing - Spicy Sausages. Hints of Pepper in the wine are a flavour-in-common. A red fruited wine gives freshness to the rich texture of the sausages.
