The Cabernet vineyards from V&A Lane have long been looked to for their depth and character as important contributors to Wynns top wines. The inspiration for the V&A Lane Cabernet Shiraz comes from the Wynns ‘claret story’ that goes back to the 1950s, where wines were made to a style rather than being about exact proportions. For this modern version, the grapes are harvested on the same day and then co-fermented. The purpose of V&A Lane wines is to showcase a contrasting wine style from our two most beloved grape varieties. A purposely early harvest to highlight a fresh red fruit spectrum, naturally lower alcohol, wild ferments, and the use of larger oak for maturation are just some of the techniques employed to make these beautiful food friendly wines.

Palate - Co-fermentation of the two varieties creates a layered and harmonious style, with unique tannin structure. This is perfectly controlled fruit, savoury and svelte with effortless flow. Pomegranate and dried orange peel mingle with a lightly herbal hint of tart olive, sour cherry, and fresh almond ginger cake. The wine is beautifully fresh throughout with a pleasant clip of dry tannin giving a nod to the regal claret style.

Nose - This wine is bursting with fruit aromas, framed by complexity from slaty and mossy notes. Perfumed notes of crushed orange blossom, pomegranate and a hint of dried orange peel.

Perfect Pairing - Lamb, pomegranate and pistachio pizza with rocket and whipped feta. The complexity of savoury, fruit and tart notes in this dish harks back to the mesh of flavours in this wine.
