Overview

Overview

A strong vintage, with ideal harvest conditions and good natural tannins and acidity, 2005 produced fruit of excellent quality with concentrated flavour, elegance and impressive structure, destined for long-term ageing.

Fruit for the 2005 Platinum Label Shiraz was selected from consistently performing, distinguished vineyards from Bethany in the Barossa Valley and the Moculta district of Eden Valley. !ese were meticulously nurtured by our viticulture and winemaking teams to grow the finest, most intense Shiraz possible.

Proudly winning six Gold medals in Australian and international wine shows, and awarded 94 points in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion, the 2005 vintage is a exceptional expression of Platinum Label at its best.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Rich with warm spices, blue and black berry fruits and dark chocolate. Developed secondary characters of leather, rich earthiness and integrated French oak highlights have melded with the concentrated fruit adding a mature complexity to the nose.

Flavours and Palate

Deep and dark with an enticing display of blackberries, dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans; with long, complex tannins providing structure for the silky, concentrated palate. Seamless, rich and intense with tremendous line and length and a lasting elegance from fine French oak.

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

Good budburst and fruitset were followed by favourable growing conditions. Harvest was early by about two weeks due to the temperate conditions, allowing for steady, continuous ripening. Temperate conditions prevailed during the harvest period enabling red varietals to show exceptional flavour and 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.
