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.

Delatite are best known for their pristine and aromatic whites, the quality of their Riesling has shone since the early 1970s. After decades of quality harvest and award winning editions, Delatite make exclusive use of the unique strains of yeast which have become native to the vineyard. Priority is given to preserving the vital expressions of the vineyard. Fruit is all hand picked, whole bunch pressed and cold settled. Juices are lightly racked and treated to a wild yeast fermentation, slow and cool, a component is vinified in large, old oak vessels for complexity. Upon completion to dryness, batches are aged on lees for eight months, periodicly stirred to encourage spicy wild yeast flavours.
Light straw hue. Classic Riesling style with rich spicy aromas of cinnamon and floral notes from ferments by wild yeast on solids. The fruit gives a wonderful background to the spice with flavours of citrus and refreshing mineral tightness. The palate is dry but the fruit and spice balance the acidity beautifully. Will develop rich toasty and honeyed flavours as it evolves.
