Wynns Reframed, with senior winemaker Sarah Pidgeon: S13E5

Wynns Reframed

Wynns Coonawarra Estate has featured fairly prominently on this podcast.

We’ve met chief winemaker Sue Hodder (S3E3), as well as viticulturist Allen Jenkins (S11 News), who’s since departed the business.

You’ve also heard about Wynns from Andrew Caillard MW, back in season 7, and Matthew Jukes in his masterclass on cabernet shiraz blends.

This time though, we’re not talking about Wynns Cabernet. At least, not as you know it.

Wynns senior winemaker Sarah Pidgeon is with us this episode to talk about Wynns Reframed, a completely new range of wines that are picked earlier, with little or no oak influence to maintain freshness and aromatics.

There’s a Cabernet Rose, and a white blend of three Italian varieties.

The reds meanwhile include a shiraz Riesling blend, which might sound weird, but there’s a story behind it, and a cabernet franc cab sav blend.

It seems like a major departure from Wynns’ core business. So in this special podcast episode – produced with Wynns’ support – I started by asking Sarah about the origins of the Wynns Reframed concept.

Wynns Reframed wines are now available nationally from select fine wine retailers (RRP $26).
