There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands,.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»

While relatively cool, the greater Margaret River region experiences an earlier vintage and can support red grape varieties which would not ripen so well elsewhere. The cooling influence of the Indian Ocean permits complex flavours to develop while warm days ripen the tannins. Picked at optimum ripeness, all vines are closely husbanded, harvest is carried out to healthy levels of baume. Fruit is destemmed but not crushed and each batch is handled separately. Treated to a cold maceratation and moderate ferment, yeasts are introduced to increase texture and aromatics. Following vinification and extended maceration, the wine is matured in a selection seasoned and new French oak barriques.
Vibrant red with purple hues. Mulberry, cassis and capsicum nose, multi black fruit characters, fragrant with blueberry and cassis. Mulberries, cassis and plum flavoured palate, supported by chocolate oak notes and exquisite licorice tannins. Delicious to drink young for its primary fruit characters, to accompany beef stroganoff, dukkah crusted lamb, mature cheddar or romano porcini tortellini.
