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.
This wine has subtle purple tinges of medium intensity. Spicy Cabernet aromas complement the deep red earthy scents of Merlot. The palate is of lively primary grape fruit flavours of plum and cherry supported with subtle hints of vanillin, tobacco and fennel.
