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.

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.

Chilly mornings, vivid afternoon sun and extended ripening, profound vintages of intensely ripened berries. Enter an exquisitely proportioned Chardonnay which captures the attention with its broad bouquet and evocative perfumes, a match to coquille st jacques, seared pesto chicken or tuna steaks under dill, champignon and creme fraiche.

To preserve the vivid fruit flavours and beautiful balance of upper Yarra Valley Chardonnay, grapes are hand picked throughout the cool morning hours, immediately destemmed and lightly crushed into a press. Juices are chilled, settled and given time for skin contact to draw some phenolic, inoculated through a combination of wild and cultured yeasts to add layers of complexity and enhance vineyard expression. Batches are filled to a mix of oak barrels and fermenters for several days vinification at 18°C to 21°C. Components are treated to fortnightly battonage on lees for up to a year before assembling into the final wine, cold stabilized and fined before bottling.
Straw yellow hues. Big bouquet of citrus and lemon curd, grapefruits, stonefruits and a whisp of toasty apple flan. Lemons and brûlée to the palate, an effusive style of crisp stone fruit flavours, ripe orchard harvests, minerality and gently spiced French oak before a lingering, fruit filled finish, elegant and pleasingly dry.
