    There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial..

    The Pike & Joyce vineyards are amongst the highest in Adelaide Hills at five hundred metres above sea level, giving the wines excellent natural acidity. The steep sloping terrain reduces the risk of frost. Vines are all hand pruned and handpicked, the fruit is chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms, before being transported to Pike's Clare Valley winery for vinification. Traditional old world techniques and modern Australian winemaking are incorporated to produce a style which reflects the variety and region. The fruit is lightly crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation. A brisk bottling upon completion captures and preserves the lovely Pinot Gris fruit character and Adelaide Hills charm.
    Medium to pale green hue. Subtle notes of yellow peach and nectarine, nashi pear and nutmeg along with a little of the river stone minerality for of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris. Medium bodied palate showing the flavours of stone fruits over a gentle creaminess which contributes texture and length. Well balanced acidity maneuvers the wine away from finishing heavy or cloying.
