Overview

Overview

The Master’ was sourced from the Pasquin Vineyard in Langhorne Creek, owned by Wolf’s first winemaker, John Glaetzer, and Bill Potts, one of the first growers to supply fruit to Wolf Blass back in 1967, who continues to supply exceptional quality fruit to this day. Planted specifically for Wolf Blass, Pasquin Vineyard is situated on an exceptional patch of ancient soil on the traditional flood plains along Step Road. The Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1994, followed by the Shiraz in 1995, with all vines on their own roots. The soil is a consistent medium clay loam, ensuring even quality across the block. Its low fertility grows vines with perfect balance, producing fruit intense in flavour, colour and tannin. The vineyard rows run east-west, allowing for even exposure to sunlight and enabling consistent ripening. Sections of the vineyard were harvested separately to allow picking at each block’s optimum maturity.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Complex layers of bramble berry fruits, warm spice, mocha and mineral notes combine to create a wine of true interest and personality

Flavours and Palate

Medium to full bodied with a depth of flavour yet lightness on the palate that unfolds in layers of complex dark mulberry fruits and savoury nuances with persistence and finesse. Oak is present, yet understated and supportive of the fruit. The palate is long and even with fine, tightly woven mineral-like tannins supporting exceptional flavour length.
