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

COLOUR Deep crimson with purple hues. NOSE Blackberry, cassis and leafy varietal notes are supported by an integrated oak lift. PALATE A medium bodied wine with the distinctive leafy notes and blackcurrant of Langhorne Creek complemented by fleshy, dark berry fruits of McLaren Vale. Fine tannins mesh seamlessly with the fruit and subtle oak to produce a structural wine with a lasting finish.
