Established in 1972, Mountadam was founded by the late David Wynn, without question one of the most significant contributors to the Australian wine industry and an important part of the Mountadam story. Amongst his many achievements, David Wynn is credited with the invention of the wine cask. Today, winemaking is managed by Con Moshos, who has a distinguished 23-year career making fine wines at Petaluma.
The wine has a deep red colour with vibrant purple tinges. The primary aromas are of cracked pepper and dark ripe plums with subtle spicy smokiness. Flavours are of cherries, dark chocolate and vanilla with a firm tannin structure and persistent length of ripe grape flavours.
