Wolf Blass Shiraz Blend Adelaide Hills Gold Label Shiraz Viognier 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wolf Blass has been crafting some of Australia's very best wines for over thirty years. Their strong focus on careful fruit sourcing, fermentation, maturation and blending delivers lifted vibrant fruit flavours, a soft, rounded palate and well integrated tannins that are the hallmarks of the total Wolf Blass range. The Wolf Blass Gold Label provides a premium drinking experience across regions and varietals. The wines created for the Gold Label range are an ever-evolving proposition: emerging varieties, groundbreaking techniques, and the most progressive regional styles are incorporated into the range as they become available. All vineyard parcels are kept separate until final blending and bottling and production levels are dictated by vintage quality. The Wolf Blass Gold Label Shiraz was sourced from Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. It gives soft, rich and elegant fruit characters. This medium to full bodied Shiraz exhibits lifted aromas of blueberries, dark plums, anise and a touch of smoky oak. Dark fruits continue on the palate with spicy oak and fine grained tannins. Enjoy it on its own or with red meat.
