Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Notes of plum, blackberry and cassis fruit with an undertone of leafy varietal character.

Flavours and Palate

Dark plum and blackcurrant fruit melds nicely with the subtle, integrated oak, creating a palate with rich flavours and a long structure. A hint of leafy Cabernet character adds freshness to the palate and the savoury oak gives a long finish.

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.

Higher than average rainfall through winter and spring resulted in good soil moisture profiles to start the season. Predominantly mild summer conditions and a warm, dry autumn allowed for slow, moderate ripening. This led to high quality wines with bright, vibrant fruit, great flavour development and varietal definition

Clare Dry - Winemaker

During her teens, Clare's interest in horticulture led to work experience at a winery on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula where she grew up. It took just two days of work experience for her to know she wanted a career in the wine industry. After high school, Clare enrolled in a Bachelor of Oenology (Wine Science) at Adelaide University and then, with a thirst for more practical knowledge before recommencing study, took a gap year to work on a vintage on the Mornington Peninsula, and a second in the Pfalz region of Germany.

Since her graduation in 2007, Clare has been a key member of the Wolf Blass team and works alongside her colleagues to ensure the guiding principles behind each wine are met.

Clare has a strong interest in cool climate wines and is particularly fond of the Adelaide Hills, where she spends a lot of time in vineyards during vintage assessing grapes for harvest, especially Pinot Noir.
