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.
A medium to full-bodied palate with elegant melon and peach fruit flavours continuing through from the nose. A fine acid backbone runs through the palate, with integrated oak supporting the fruit but never dominating. Extended time on lees has provided a creamy mouthfeel and further layers of complexity. The finish is long and balanced.The finish is long and balanced.
To create the Wolf Blass Gold Label collection, our winemakers select the definitive varieties of the very best South Australian wine regions to produce a range of progressive, elegant wines that showcase both regional and varietal excellence.
Our Adelaide Hills vineyards grow elegant, complex Chardonnays with clarity of fruit and regional expression. Select parcels of fruit were hand picked and whole-bunch pressed before fermentation in small batches using a combination of wild and cultured yeast and natural malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was left to mature on lees with regular barrel stirring to build texture and complexity.
