Overview

Overview

In his heyday, Wolfgang Blass was confident and charismatic – just like his wines. He pushed winemaking boundaries, revolutionising the way Australians enjoyed wine. Fifty years on the world has changed, but Wolf’s spirit hasn’t, continuing to motivate and encourage our next generation winemakers to uphold his legacy. Inspired by a new wave of unconventional winemaking, Blass by Wolf Blass was born. Hand-crafted wines in the spirit of contemporary style and experimentation. Blass Noir Chardonnay was harvested at optimum maturity from low-yielding vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. Chardonnay from this area is noted for its purity of fruit, refined flavours, and cool-climate regional expression.

Viticulture

Viticulture

Winter rainfall was light yet consistent, leading in to a warm, dry spring, with good flowering and fruit set allowing for even berry development. Summer was relatively cool, with January rains providing vines with a much needed drink. Fine, mild conditions ensuredlong, cool ripening, resulting in fleshy, aromatic and fruit-filled wines.
