John's Blend Shiraz Langhorne Creek Margarete's 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

John's Blend 1999 Margarete’s Shiraz is sealed under cork. The bouquet exudes bright and vibrant fruit that is dominated by coconut oak which leads to a palate that is dominated by coconut oak, mint, dark fruits and chocolate. The fruit is deeply-seated and pure. It has enough oomph to match the oak influence, as well as the load of fine, drying tannins. A full-bodied, firm, harmonious wine that is approaching seamlessness, the acid is still amazingly fresh.

They had a vision of creating their own unique premium wine label - John’s Blend was the result. First vintaged in 1974, the Cabernet Sauvignon was created under this new label. John’s Blend was an instant success when it was released in 1977. The then youthful John had already worked with some of the greats of Australian wine, including John Vickery and starting work with Wolf Blass after graduating from the Oenology course in 1970. John’s Blend developed side-by-side with numerous Wine Show honours and John’s own prominent role in Wolf Blass Wines as the senior red winemaker. The result was hardly surprising; for John’s part in the story of Wolf Blass Wines, resulted in winning an unrivalled four of the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophies for Australia’s top red wine 1974, 1975, 1976, and 1999. Also winning eleven Montgomery Trophies for the finest red wines at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show, to name just a few of the awards. It would be fair to say that in Australia’s fine wine making fraternity there are few others who share, with John Glaetzer, the extent and depth of contribution to super premium red wine. With over thirty years experience in fine wine making, John continues to provide the unique experience of John’s Blend to connoisseurs from around the world. In 1995 - Margarete’s Shiraz was added. A wine that is rich and intense - a perfect companion to the Cabernet Sauvignon. Both strictly limited wines, the John’s Blend companions, are as friendly and as rewarding as its maker; and reflects, like John and Margarete themselves, the richness and enjoyment of Australian finest wine regions and their people.

Delicious, savory, dark wine with plum, cassis and brown sugar spice. Smooth, round tannins pumped up with big, black fruits. Finish is long and full, showing some toast from its 26 months in oak.

Ripe and plump, nicely polished to show off the plum and berry fruit, which shows more up front than on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

From the collectorandrsquo;s vintage, this wine, aged 26 months, is deep and densely colored with rich nuances of chocolate and mint. Very good now and possibly better in the short term future.
