Lithe and distinctive for a cedary note that mingles with mint and a modest level of cherry flavor, coming together for a finish. Needs time to soften. Best from 2010 through 2014.

The Yellow Label Shiraz is sourced from premium South Australian vineyards. Attractive plum, spice and pepper characters marry well with subtle integrated oak, creating a rich, well structured Shiraz with good length of flavor.

Dark in tone but jazzy in structure, with a racy feel to the prominent cherry and black currant flavors, shaded with hints of pepper and tar on the fine-grained finish. Drink now.

Although the winery is based in the small Barossa town of Nuriootpa, a significant portion of the fruit in this blend comes from the Langhorne Creek region, for which Wolf Blass has been a longtime advocate as the regionrsquo;s soft tannins and early drinkability mesh well with the wineryrsquo;s preferred style. Certainly, the warm 2005 growing season worked well with Senior Winemaker Caroline Dunnrsquo;s approachable style, resulting in a full-bodied but soft Shiraz loaded with plummy fruit. Hints of cedar, leather and earth impart remarkable complexity to an entry-level wine, finishing with a touch of coffee.

Soft and aromatic, a generous mouthful of anise-scented berry, black cherry and prune flavors that linger on the supple finish. Drink now through 2007.

Solidly textured, with juicy blackberry, cherry and smoke flavors mingling effectively on the fine-grained finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
