Description

In its 44th vintage, Wolf Blass Black Label Cabernet Shiraz Malbec has been artfully blended to create a sophisticated red wine. Built on complex, multi-layered flavour and magnificent structure, Black Label is a powerful expression of the Wolf Blass philosophy of synergistic blending. Harvested at optimum maturity and flavour, fruit from each vineyard was crushed, destemmed and fermented separately for seven to twelve days on skins. The ferments were allowed to warm naturally, with plunging and gentle pumping over used to maximise colour and flavour extraction. Mid-ferment cooling extended fermentation, exploiting time on skins and accentuating line and length. Some batches stayed on skins to dryness, while others completed fermentation in barrel, allowing a balanced integration of oak characters and enhancing texture and complexity

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance Appearance
    Concentrated deep purple.
  • Nose Nose
    A lifted, fragrant nose, with blackberry, cassis and dark plum fruits reinforced with roast coffee, chocolate, fennel seed, and toasted nut complexity derived from barrel fermentation and maturation. Hints of tobacco leaf add attractive highlights.
  • Palate
    Generous and complex, with dark plum and blackcurrant fruit layered with savoury secondary flavours of coffee and cedary oak. A full, rich, palate reflecting the vintage. Lingering fruit and smooth, long, chocolatey tannins.

Sommelier Review

“Full, ripe, round, dry palate with some young tannins and some warmth. Smoky, coffee, vanilla, blueberry jam, peppery, licorice, cigar flavours. Finish is very warm. Needs a few years in the bottle to mellow out flavours.”
