About this winery

After studying Champagne techniques in France in 1957, Wolfgang Franz Otto Blass, became the youngest person ever to graduate with a Master's in Oenology (Wine Science) from Veitschoechheim-Wuerzberg. In 1959, he moved to England to study the art of blending before moving to the Barossa Valley in 1961, deciding against a move to Venezuela which had started a revolt against its government. A mere five years later, in 1966, he established Wolf Blass Wines.

Tasting notes

Wolf Blass Brown Label Classic Shiraz is a full-bodied, rich red wine that brings together the best of the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. With traditional roots and modern appeal, it promises complexity, completeness and ageing potential.

Viticultural notes

Good winter rains were followed by a dry spring, with strong winds during flowering reducing yields. After a warm to hot summer, much-needed rain in mid-February reduced temperatures and slowed ripening, allowing for gradual flavour accumulation and tannin development

Winemaking notes

Matured in 52% seasoned and 24% new French oak, and 14% seasoned and 10% new American oak for 18 months to incorporate further layers of complexity.
