Excellent wine...nice tannins, good pepper...everything I expect from S. Australia wine country. A great buy...smooth, smooth.
Truly lovely wine -- totally organic. Very smooth. I also bought two bottes of the Bonterra Organic Cabernet...not as yummy! Truly healthy wine.
I bought about four of the bottles and I was pleased with the Shiraz. Although I usually love Barossa and McClaren Vale wine, this was a pleasant and smooth Shiraz. High in alcohol and taste -- just the way I like it!
Great wine for under $20. I love McClaren Vale and Barossa shiraz, but this one from Victoria is velvet. Lovely taste and ready to drink now...sorry it is sold out.
I wish I was able to cellar wine as this shiraz will only get better. This Layer Cake wine is aptly named as it has many layers and levels. I also got a very nice buzz from the wine.
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.
