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, that collaborated to create, the most.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»

Port Phillip pursue a philosophy of reverence, respecting the land and preserving purity of fruit. Parcels of Chardonnay are hand picked after reaching optimum ripeness, off vines aged an average of twenty years, trellised to vertical shoot positioning. Fruit is whole bunch pressed directly to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, where it is treated to a natural vinification without the addition of any yeasts. Once fermentations have ceased, the parcels are sulphured to prevent malolactic, retaining all the freshness of natural acidity. This intense Chardonnay wine is matured one year on sedimentery yeast lees, for finer, more elegant structure and texture.
Bright light lemon hue. A delicate nose of grapefruit pith, green apple and lime leaf, hazelnuts and cream. The palate is mineral and dry, linear and pure, with savoury acid crunch defining the varietal character, excellent intensity and length, with an underlying hint of savouriness. Grapefruit and lime fruits persist, a subtle ginger spiciness leads to a focused, chalky saline finish.
