Wynns’ John Riddoch: an Australian Cabernet icon

This heralded Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon became the first Australian wine to be distributed on La Place de Bordeaux in 2020. David Sly discovers its secrets from Wynns Coonawarra Estate's chief winemaker Sue Hodder and we taste the latest release back to the inaugural 1982 vintage.

Acceptance of Wynns Coonawarra Estate‘s 2016 John Riddoch by La Place de Bordeaux in September 2020 – the first Australian wine distributed by this influential vinous marketplace – will see this Cabernet Sauvignon, beloved in Australia, now reach a prestigious network of international fine wine buyers and collectors in more than 100 countries.
