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.

Product notes

Higher than average rainfall through winter and spring resulted in good soil moisture profiles to start the season. Predominantly mild summer conditions and a warm, dry autumn allowed for slow, moderate ripening. This led to high quality wines with bright, vibrant fruit, great flavour development and varietal definition.

Winemaking notes

29% was matured with oak for 2 months, adding texture and complexity to produce a balanced, integrated wine.

Tasting notes

Deep red colour with a purple hue. Notes of plum, blackberry and cassis fruit with an undertone of leafy varietal character. Dark plum and blackcurrant fruit melds nicely with the subtle, integrated oak, creating a palate with rich flavours and a long structure. A hint of leafy Cabernet character adds freshness to the palate and the savoury oak gives a long finish.
