Overview

Overview

The 1995 vintage sees the 23rd consecutive release of Black Label, our iconic flagship and the first ultra-premium wine made by Wolf Blass, with the aim to create the finest red blend from the vintage.

The philosophy behind Black Label is simple: to take the year’s very best wines and weave them together into a synergistic whole, the resultant wine being greater than the sum of its parts. It’s about creating a wine with many layers of flavour in a complex composition of intense fruit characters, magnificent structure, a rich lustrous texture, long velvety tannins and a lingering palate.

Fruit for Black Label is chosen solely on the basis of its intensity of flavour and potential for longevity. The individual vineyard batches were de-stemmed and crushed before a warm fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Pressed off skins and racked, Black Label completed fermentation in American and French oak prior to 30 months oak maturation.

South Australia

Home to the oldest vines in the country, and no less than 18 wine growing regions, South Australia accounts for almost 50% of Australia’s wine production. The Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Coonawarra are well known for their world class reds, with Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley and Eden Valley praised for their exceptional Chardonnay and Riesling.

An extremely dry winter was followed by good fruit set in spring. Low rainfall continued into summer, resulting in low crop yields. Cool, dry conditions throughout ripening allowed fruit to ripen slowly and fully, with resultant berries being small in size with great concentration of colour, rich fruit flavours, good structure and firm tannins.

Wolf Blass Team

The Wolf Blass team of winemakers share a similar working ethos – to boldly chase the pursuit of excellence, to uphold and represent Wolf Blass' proud history, and to create wine of exceptional quality.
