Wynns Coonawarra Estate’s Latest Release is 2024’s Most Luxurious Wine Collection

In Partnership with Wynns Coonawarra Estate

For all the passionate wine lovers out there, prepare to say “Happy Wynnsday!” on 5 June. That’s the day world-class winery Wynns Coonawarra Estate will launch its hotly anticipated annual Luxury Collection, which is a range of six wines that represent the very best of the winery’s vintage. Spanning a range of tiers and price points, the collection offers something for everybody and leaves no savvy sipper behind. We’re particularly excited for the two Black Label releases, including one of the most acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignons you’ll find in Australia. Is anyone else thirsty right now or is it just us?

A World-Class Winery With a Legendary History

Steeped in all kinds of history, Wynns Coonawarra Estate remains the largest single vineyard holder and pre-eminent producer in its region. The estate was established in 1891 when Scottish pioneer John Riddoch planted the first vines. Wine merchants Samuel and David Wynn purchased Riddoch’s original vineyards in 1951 and renamed the estate, thereby spawning one of Australia’s most iconic labels. The triple-gabled winery has been synonymous with top-shelf quality and intense flavour profiles ever since.

Wynns Coonawarra Estate is gearing up for the annual release of the Luxury Collection 2024 (aka the Wynnsday Collection) under the winemaking leadership of Sue Hodder and Sarah Pidgeon. The award-winning pair are supported by winemaker Chris Plummer and the Estate’s viticulturists Dr Catherine Martin Kidman and Ben Harris, who have both recently been awarded Viticulturalist of the Year by Australia’s leading Wine Society.

Culled from abundant Terra Rossa soils in the heart of Coonawarra, each of the wines within the Luxury Collection 2024 reflects the best of that particular vintage. This year’s collection includes six refined and medium-bodied red wines from the 2021 and 2022 vintage and can be consumed young or cellared for later. Hodder has described it as “one of the best range of wines that have been released” in all her time at Wynns, which is saying quite a lot as she’s been at the label for over three decades.

Meet Wynn’s Black Label, One of Australia’s Greatest Cabs

If Wynns Coonawarra Estate is both a winery and a story, the Black Label wine is like a story within the story. The Cabernet Sauvignon varietal is of particular significance and legacy. Not just one of the greatest wines throughout all of Australia, this heritage-listed red carries forth over six decades of history with each annual release.

So goes the continuing evolution of a living icon that tells a savoury story with every sip. The Black Label releases are also priced affordably and all the more appealing as a result. For yourself or your favourite wine lover, be sure to pick up a few bottles of the Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2022 when it debuts on June 5.

A Closer Look at the Luxury Collection 2024

The Wynns Black Label Cabernet is one of six elegant wines in the Luxury Collection 2024. Here’s a closer look at the superlative range, which runs the full gamut of tiers and price points:

  • Wynns Michael Shiraz 2021 (AUD$149.99): Named for the son of label founder David Wynn, this best-of-vintage Shiraz comes exclusively from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is only made when the highest-quality fruit is available.
  • Wynns Messenger Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 (AUD$79.99): Sourced from a single vineyard and carefully selected as part of an ongoing tradition, this premium wine delivers signature aromas, silky texture, and rich taste.
  • Wynns Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2022 (AUD$45): For over 60 years and counting, this world-class wine has been produced from the top 20 to 25 per cent of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit grown in terra rossa vineyards, making it one of the most cherished and collectible wines in Australia.
  • Wynns Black Label ‘Old Vines’ Shiraz 2022 (AUD$45): The Old Vines Shiraz grapes used in this Black Label release are grown in various fertile locations throughout Coonawarra, resulting in a classic medium-bodied wine with silky qualities and effortlessly sippable style.
  • Wynns V&A Lane Shiraz 2022 (AUD$59.99): Sourced from a special area (aka V&A Lane) where the Shiraz vines ripen early, this eye-popping wine combines youthful qualities with mature structure while delivering intense notes of vibrant red fruit.
  • Wynns V&A Lane Cabernet Shiraz 2022 (AUD$59.99): Select grapes from V&A Lane are harvested early and co-fermented to offer this fruit-forward red wine and its unconventional flavour profile, which pairs wonderfully with food.
