Rymill Coonawarra

South Australia | Coonawarra

James' Review

The Rymills are descendants of John Riddoch and long owned some of the finest Coonawarra soil, upon which they grew grapes since 1970. In '16 the Rymill family sold the winery, vineyards and brand to a Chinese investor. The management, vineyard and winery teams have remained in place and new capital has financed moves to improve the vineyards and winery. Argentinean-born Frederico Zaina. has been joined by Australian-born Josh Clementson in the winery. The winery building also houses the cellar door and art exhibitions, which, together with viewing platforms over the winery, make it a must-see destination for tourists. Exports to all major markets.

About

Rymill Coonawarra was established in 1974, by Peter Rymill - the great-grandson of John Riddoch, the founder of Coonawarra. Since then, Rymill Coonawarra has built on this legacy and evolved into a destination described as a ‘must visit’ by regarded wine critic James Halliday.

By embracing its environment and caring for healthy vines, a vineyard allows us to encapsulate great flavours in wines. Our daily commitment to sustainable practices is guaranteeing the next generations will also enjoy the beauty of Coonawarra. The winemaking is very much about handcrafted wines. The team work to selectively harvest the vineyards to capture the highest quality parcels of grapes, and with careful “attention to detail” small batch winemaking, they can preserve this quality through to bottling.

Specialities

Cabernet, shiraz, sauvignon blanc, gewürztraminer.
