Meet the Winemaker (Episode 97): Sue Hodder, Wynns
Debra catches up with Sue Hodder of Wynns, Coonawarra South Australia, a winery specialising in Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Shiraz, Riesling and Chardonnay. They discuss the trademark “minty” character of Cabernet from the region, with Sue emphasising its complementary characteristics when paired with certain foods (including some Chinese faves!).
Debra digs a little deeper on women in the winery, and they discuss exactly how many hours a day winemakers spend tasting wine (you may be surprised!) and how vital it is that they care for their palates. They discuss the challenges of Sue’s 18 year career, as well as one reason that Wynns has gained interest from Asian consumers.
