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, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

Amisfield Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Central Otago New Zealand
There are three blocks of Sauvignon Blanc at Amisfield, near the shores of Lake Dunstan in Central Otago. Older vines at the edge of Rocky Knoll yield fruit with delicious ripe stone fruit characters and pronounced minerality. Younger plantings on a beautiful elevated terrace above the winery provide grapes which are brim full of vim and vigor. A combination of wild indigenous yeast vinifications, oak barrel ferments and sedimentery lees stirring, achieves a singularly vigorous and compelling case for Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$299.00
Harvest begins with a golden pick of the ripest fruit from silts at the edge of Rocky Knoll, progressing toward the top terraces. A percentage is destemmed directly into the press to provide a modicum of skin contact. Juices are fermented cool with choice yeats, selected for their capacity to retain vibrancy and zip. A smaller pick of late picked fruit is whole bunch pressed directly to French oak barriques where natural indigenous yeasts do their work. The ferments are wild and vigorous, making a wine of great texture and exotic stone fruit characters. Most batches are aged on light fluffy lees, a portion is matured in French oak, while being treated to regular lees stirring battonage for palate richness.
Light straw colour. Aromas of limes and passionfruit complimented by a mixture of tropical stone fruit. The palate is full bodied and dry with considerable fruit weight and layering. Rife with tropical meets vegetal complexity, the palate is full bodied and dry with great intensity of fruit balanced by refreshing acidity.
