John Glaetzer was right hand man to the legendary Wolf Blass throughout the breathtaking sequence of Black Label Jimmy Watson victories. Ben Potts learned his trade at the oldest family owned wineworks in Australia Bleasdale, established by the larger than life Frank Potts in 1858. Ben's great grandfather was the first Langhorne Creek grower to supply grapes to Wolf Blass.

The majority of components are treated to several days cold soak maceration, concentrating the ripe berry fruit characters, followed by vinification in open top fermenters. The balance is vinified at cooler temperatures to retain aromatic intensity and reduce alcoholic extraction, before being run off for a course of concentration. Regular pumpovers maximize colour, flavour and tannin extraction from skins. Ferments are pressed off to a selection of new and second use French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic and a term of twenty months maturation. Rigorous barrel selection ensures that only the highest quality components are included into the finished wine.
Deep purple in the glass. A nose reminiscent of black and blue berry fruit, mocha and vanillin oak. The seductive palate is rich and intense with plum, black cassis fruit with hints of chocolate, liquorice and earthy exotic spices. Cedary oak is evident but well integrated and the finish is smooth and persistent. Drinks marvelously upon release and will develop handsomely.
