Since 1973, the chase to make the perfect wine has been fundamental to creating 44 remarkable vintages of Black Label. Built on complex, multilayered flavour and magnificent structure, Black Label is a powerful expression of the Wolf Blass philosophy of synergistic blending. The philosophy behind Black Label is simple: to take the year’s very best wines and weave them together into a synergistic whole, the resultant wine being greater than the sum of its parts. It’s about creating a wine with many layers of flavour in a complex composition of intense fruit characters, magnificent structure, a rich lustrous texture, long velvety tannins and a lingering palate. Harvested at optimum maturity and flavour, fruit from each vineyard was crushed, destemmed and fermented separately for seven to twelve days on skins. The ferments were allowed to warm naturally, with plunging and gentle pumping over used to maximise colour and flavour extraction.

Award tasting note: "Aromas of dried black fruit, mocha and spice. Smooth, rich and developed. Ready to drink." - Bronze, International Wine Challenge

The elite parcels of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon selected for Wolf Blass Black Label are brought together to form a perfect storm of concentrated power. This wine is the darling of collectors as a result, and it should be yours with its magnificent ability to be a rich and concentrated when young and a wonderfully balanced amalgam of flavours with a touch of bottle age. Sublime!
