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. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

Fruit is harvested in two separate parcels off the Hanlin Hill Vineyard in Valley Clare. Shiraz is drawn from Block C, originally planted in 1963 but with a chequered past of being grafted to Chardonnay in 1983 and chain sawed back to the original Shiraz plantings in 1997. Malbec is picked off Block I, established 1969. Perfect phenolic ripeness determines a whole bunch fermentation. Components of Malbec and Shiraz are treated to a regimen of fully oxidative handling and inoculation to wild, unruly yeasts. The finished wine is assembled into a forward drinking, yet cellarable style of great interest, substance and structure. Alcohol 13.2%
Deep dark red colour. The nose delivers an array of red fruits, raspberry and morello cherry are layered with sweet five-spice and earthy beetroot notes. A brooding explosion of anise, cherry and mulberry flavours is pulled together by velvety whole bunch tannins. A challenging and thoughtful wine that keeps you going back to your glass for the next sip.
