Winemaker's Notes

This Shiraz is vibrant deep red in color with purple hues. The aromas exhibit blueberries, blackberries and dark plums overlaid with anise and smoky oak. Full, round and soft, this wine shows excellent depth across palate balanced by good acidity and fine long tannins.

Pair this Shiraz with slow roasted lamb shanks with tomato relish and creamy pepper mashed potatoes.

My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Wolf Blass Winery when in Barossa Valley. We stayed in Adelaide, South Australia. We purchased several bottles of Gold and due to international flying restrictions, we drank most along the way in Australia (we also traveled to Port Douglas for the barrier reef and rainforest). Many restaurants have corkage fees and we brought the Gold Label with us. For the price, the Gold 2005 is a superb wine....would spend $50/bottle for it! We also bought a bottle of the Platinum Shiraz (2004) at a cool $185. -- the only bottle we brought home to the states. It was more than superb, but the Gold Label 2005 is a classic Barossa Shiraz. My husband loves chocolate overtones in his wine and nothing sweet. The Gold Label is smooth. A great value and actually worth more than the cost. A steal! I intend to buy more. And I was very happy to drink wine at the source...I really loved McClaren Vale, but nothing compares to Barossa if you love a Shiraz.

I just finished my last bottle of this vintage and I now wish I had purchased more. This is an unbelievable wine for the price.

Ethanol and grape juice. I wasted $24 and now can use it for cooking. Nose: grapes! Flavor: sour grapes. Complexity: None! Finish: almost none. Tanins: none--just a bit sour. Did I get a bad bottle? I rated this wine 1.5 on a scale of 1-7.
