Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

A sumptuous, multifaceted nose of dark red berries, cassis and prunes with complex notes of charcuterie, mocha, panforte, chicory root, chinotto and black olive.

Flavours and Palate

Fleshy, opulent dimensions and a velvet plushness are defining elements on the palate, with full, firm tannins pulling everything into line and providing balance and foundation. Lingering dense fruit flavours and refined French oak enhance the finish.

Map of South Australia

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Just one hour’s drive from South Australia’s capital, Adelaide, lies its gourmet capital (and wine Mecca), Barossa. One of the country’s most beautiful and historic wine regions, Barossa is a magnet for lovers of fine food and wine. Its classic Mediterranean climate, and free-draining red brown soils, makes the region ideal for growing grapes. Barossa produces excellent Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Riesling and Semillon.

Vintage Conditions

The growing season began with above average rainfall that filled soil profiles, however spring and summer were dry, with temperatures slightly above average. Early lignification and flavour development allowed for picking at optimum flavour, without excessive sugar. Harvest was relatively early, with reds showing excellent varietal expression, plush palates and fine tannin structure.

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.
