Earthy, tobacco and dusty leather nose. Smooth, medium bodied, well balanced wine, which, despite it’s age, is showing some primary blackberry fruit. Elegant palate with a dry powdery tannic finish. Drinking really well and a fine example of middle aged Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. GPL is named after George Patrick Lynn, the patriarch of the Lynn family. 1968 was when the family planted their first vines.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
