Winemaker's Notes

Wolf Blass Chief Winemaker Chris Hatcher, who has been the prime force behind this wine, refers to it as "the ultimate winemaker's wines. It is every winemaker"s dream to make one special wine with absolutely no restrictions placed on style, oak or quantity. This wine is simply unique - the best we can do with the best individual parcels of fruit we have".

"This wine reached the top class in its debut vintage last year. The main source is the old-vine Hutton Vale vineyard in Eden Valley, and it makes a generous wine, a plump mouthful of dead-ripe black cherry, black pepper, plum and spicy cream flavors that persist through the fleshy finish, yet it all holds together with refinement…"

A classic Barossa Shiraz aged in 100% French oak, this superb wine should drink well for 15-20 years."
-Wine Advocate
