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,.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»

Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria
Stephen Shelmerdine never applies any pressure on his Pinot vines to perform. Handling fruit and wine by gravity, knowing when not to interfere, indigenous yeasts and a subdued use of oak, all help to render the style. The challenge is to preserve aromas and to let the palate form by itself. A pure, small batch Pinot wine, elegance and finesse are the defining characters, matched by fine texture and good structure. The result is subtlety over sunshine, terroir over intervention and delicacy over extraction, fashioned to be beautiful to drink.

Lusatia Park Block B is one of the more aromatic Pinot Noir sites in upper Yarra Valley. Pinot clone MV6 vines are cane pruned to twenty five buds and shoot thinned at the 10cm or 15cm stage to yield eighteen 80gm bunches each. All grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted and destemmed into six tonnes open fermenters, a portion of whole bunches are included. Natural vinification ensues as the cap recieves an occasional plunge toward the end of ferments. After two or three weeks on skins, batches are pressed, settled overnight and gravity filled to French oak casks for up to a year's maturation. Barrels are racked once again and filled to bottle without fining or filtration.
Full ruby colour. Intense Pinot nose with purity and fragrance, alluring wild red fruit aromatics. Complex varietal characters coalesce on a palate of superb concentration, a Pinot palate of texture, plumpness and softness. Elegant, minerally and fine, a finish of extended fruit, lingering silky tannins and the piquant sweetness of freshly pitted cherry.
