Élaboré pour la première fois en 1982, le John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon a été conçu comme un vin phare pour Wynns. John Riddoch lui-même était un véritable visionnaire. Parmi ses nombreuses réalisations, citons la construction de la cave Wynns Gabled et la création de la Coonawarra Fruit Colony. Le John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon est produit en petites quantités à partir des meilleurs fruits disponibles cultivés sur les vastes plantations de Cabernet Sauvignon du domaine au cœur du sol terra rossa. Il est devenu un Cabernet Sauvignon définitif de la Coonawarra, produit uniquement les années où des raisins d'une qualité extraordinaire sont disponibles, utilisant moins d'un pour cent des raisins de Cabernet Sauvignon de qualité supérieure.

Notes de dégustation


These John Riddoch wines are, with each passing year, more approachable, more supple and more lithe on release. Coonawarra has a reputation in Australia for producing extraordinarily long-lived Cabernet Sauvignons, which are not necessarily approachable early. Well. These modern wines buck that trend. The refined oak program has actually done something to support the fruit and elevate it rather than weigh it down—a result of many years of research and work by the Wynns team, particularly winemaker Sarah Pigeon. So, to the wine. This 2016 John Riddoch Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon offers five spice, mulberry, raspberry salted licorice, clove, tobacco leaf, a hint of nag champa tobacco, jasmine tea and brilliant length—I wrote the note off the length. These wines should be measured by their balance, and their ability to age. In this case, also by its beauty as a young wine. Drink it now, but you're better served by exercising a little patience and drinking from 2026 through to the late 2040s and beyond. - EL 08/2022


The classic Cabernet Sauvignon John Riddoch from 2016 is so pretty but don’t be deceived as it is also built to last. Beautifully bright and fragrant, there is impeccable fruit purity with graphite, cassis and leafy aromas underpinned by fine French oak. It then builds layers of cassis and gravel flavour with fantastic fruit composure and focus which drives a long, engaging finish. Truly seamless, this beautiful combination of subtlety, concentration and structure is impressive to drink now but will get so much better over the next two decades. - AH 09/2022


This is a very impressive and regal cabernet with a rich array of ripe blackcurrants, mulberries and blackberries on offer, as well as a cedary and gently chalky edge. There’s a very rich and powerful core of deep-set fruit, as well as a thread of rich chocolate flavor and a very polished, assertive core of tannin that holds super long. Try from 2022. Screw cap. - JS 06/2019
