Wolf Blass Shiraz Yellow Label 2008
3 Trophies and 1 gold at the 2009 Royal Adelaide Wine Show including the Max Schubert Trophy forbest red wine of the show.What stunning value for the best red wine of the show. 94% Shiraz and 6% Viognier with a short maturation in both French and American oak. This is a medium bodied red with sweet raspberry and cherry fruit whilst the Viognier gives it a floral lift and hints of ginger and spice. This is a beautifully textured wine that has a silkiness andslipperiness that leaves you with no other choice than to reach for the bottle and pour yourself another glass.
External Reviews for Wolf Blass Shiraz Yellow Label
Oak lends nutty, caroby aromas and big, woodsy tannins to this well-priced red; fleshy red plum and berry fruit makes up the balance. Has pretty good length on the finish, too. Well made and with 17,000 cases produced, it should be relatively easy to find.
Bright and spicy, with a veil of floral and tangy spice notes over the basic lively berry flavors, echoing on a crisp finish. Drink now through 2009.
Smooth in texture, ripe in flavor, the cherry and blackberry flavors pick up a dried fruit note as they linger on the cedary finish. Drink now through 2008.
Polished and appealing for its blackberry and spice flavors, persisting on the refreshing open-textured finish. Drink now through 2011.
Supple, focused and appealing for the cedary, creamy overtones to the ripe currant and blueberry fruit. Persists nicely on the refined finish. Drink now through 2012.
On the lighter side, with pretty plum and spice flavors and vaguely citrusy acidity to balance. A lively wine to drink sooner rather than later. Drink now through 2002.
Firm in texture, with cedary flavors more prominent than fruit. The finish picks up plum and dried tomato notes. Drink now through 2009.
