Rymill 2010 The Surveyor

The new icon wine from Rymill Wines is named after John Riddoch Rymill, grandson of John Riddoch, who founded Coonawarra in 1890. Rymill was an Australian polar explorer; and both a surveyor and pilot. There was a lot of pressure on French winemaker Sandrine Gimon to come up with a wine that was good enough to stand as a salute to a Rymill family hero – and she’s come up trumps with a cracking, complex and beautifully balanced red wine that’s made from 85 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 10 per cent cabernet franc and 5 per cent merlot – a classic Bordeaux blend that is smooth and structured with no rough edges, but also intense, textural and interesting. It can be pre-ordered at and will be released on December 1. $80.
