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.

The Helbig property at Greenock in the west of Barossa Valley was acquired by Elderton in 2010 and is a great addition to the portfolio, yields are very low, to ensure younger vines remain healthy and produce a superior harvest that belies their age. Shiraz is typically the first to ripen, sent for a course of open top vinification before components of the later ripening Grenache and Mourvedre are treated to a traditional co fermentation. Batches are transferred to a selection of seasoned French oak puncheons for fifteen months maturation.
Bright scarlet colour. Pepper, blue fruits, anise and violet nose. Bright, elegant, textural palate, layered with black pepper and fruits, structured with richness, Mourvedre contributes earthiness and liquorice notes, Grenache brings roundness, tradewinds, blue fruits and spice.
