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.

Grant Burge's Filsell property is planted to vines almost a hundred years of age, it is considered one of the finest vineyards in Barossa Valley and consistently yields vintages of great intensity and concentration. The lower cropping and limited harvest of these stately old vines translates into a Shiraz of opulence and remarkable balance. All individual pickings of fruit are separately crushed and vinified. Juices reach 28C at the onset of ferments before being cooled to 22C for a week. Batches are pumped over thrice daily before a gentle press and transfer to a selection of new and seasoned American oak barrels and French hogsheads for completion of ferments and twenty months maturation.
Deep, dark red with purple hues. Nose of dark chocolate, licorice and lifted raspberry fruit over hints of lavender. The palate is full of intense red berry fruits, ripe blackberries and rhubarb infused by lifted spice and rich vanilla, milk chocolate notes. Beautifully weighted with optimal balance between ripe, concentrated fruit flavours, sweet spices, tannins and acidity. A silky, well rounded fleshy fruit style, to partner with oven braises or mature cheddar.
