Michael Limited Release 2013
Michael Shiraz is Wynns Coonawarra Estate's best-of-vintage Shiraz.
The first Michael (then named Michael Hermitage) was a one-off make from the 1955 vintage, made after proprietor David Wynn noticed the outstanding quality of the wine from two particular barrels and ordered them to be bottled separately. This wine - named after Wynn's young son - is a legend of the Australian wine story with good examples of the 1955 Michael Hermitage still offering an outstanding wine experience.
Revived with the superb 1990 vintage, the fruit used for this wine comes from the best vineyard sites in Coonawarra and is made only in years when the grapes are of extraordinarily high quality.
