The Barossa Valley is a wonderful haven of glorious wine and food. Of the many stars, Shiraz commands the highest accolades. This wine captures the epitome of old world Barossa charm and combines it with the intensity of modern winemaking skill and extended maturation in new oak. The result is a dramatic "layer cake" of character and complexity.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The appearance is opaque, inky magenta / black with dense purple hues on the rim and long, viscous alcohol legs.

Aroma

The bouquet is powerful with dark chocolate and cedar wood up front followed by complex savoury aromas of gourmet deli. There's a lively lift of sweet spice, red berries and the yeasty aroma of freshly toasted brioche. The initial impact is full and intense yet the overall impression is supple, inviting and delightfully sophisticated.

Palate

The palate is bigger than anticipated with weighty fruit and a strong tannin grip. The initial flavours are dark plums and cherries with luscious oak adding subtle spice and savoury elements. The middle palate kicks in with a hint of sweet blackberry and raspberry coulis, which takes the edge off the youthful tannins allowing the alcohol warmth to linger on the tongue and deliver a long lasting finish that has surprising elegance and charisma, inviting sip after sip. This is a very generous wine showing premium fruit and skillful winemaking.

Food Matching

The wonderful savoury characters of this Shiraz are ideally matched to rare roast lamb or a juicy wagyu beef steak with garlic butter and crispy fried potatoes.

Cellaring Potential

This is a classic Barossa wine which will deliver excellent drinking over a decade of careful cellaring. From release it offers an intense flavour experience which will continue to develop and gain complexity as it matures in bottle. Decanting for a few hours is recommended prior to consuming.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Intense purple colour, perfect for a Barossa Shiraz.

The nose is rich with red berries, chocolate and spice with a hint of oak around the edges.

The palate is powerful, dark berries and chocolate everywhere, with anise and allspice dotted here and there rolling into a fine coffee finish. Mouthfeel great as usual, fine grained tannins and fresh acidity. The length keeps on going. Intense but restrained Barossa Shiraz.

Accompany with a char-grilled rib-eye on the bone with Cafe de Paris butter and shoestring chips.

With well over forty vintages under his belt, Chris’s career is full of many and varied experiences in the South Australian wine industry. Commencing in 1963, Chris became involved in Barossa viticulture working with 100 year old Shiraz, old bush vine Mataro and Tokay. In 1977 he joined Wolf Blass Wines as a Cellar Hand.Some two years later, recognising Chris’s management talents, attention to detail and natural ability to assess flavour profiles in pre-fermented and pre-finished wines, he was promoted to Cellar Master and in 1990 appointed Wolf Blass Winery Manager.

Working closely with Wolf Blass and the Senior Winemaker, Chris was responsible for the blending of many of the early Black Label, Grey and Yellow Label wines so sort after by today’s discerning consumers. In the decade preceeding Chris’s retirement in 2009, he oversaw the careers of many of today’s talented and well known winemakers.
