Overview

Overview

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.

Shiraz was sourced predominantly from low-yielding vineyards across the Barossa Valley floor, which provide intensity and rich, bright fruit character. This was supplemented by cooler climate Eden Valley fruit contributing fragrance, elegance and subtle spicy notes. Following crushing, individual vineyard batches were fermented with a mix of plunging and pumping-over applied to allow optimum release of colour and flavour without excessive extraction of tannin.

Viticulture

Viticulture

Winter was drier than average, followed by a warm, dry spring and early-summer, with good conditions for flowering and fruit set. January and February were mild, with welcome rain in late January slowing ripening. This allowed for early lignification of seeds and stalks, with development of rich, bright fruit flavours, dense colours and ripe tannins
