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..

O'Leary Walker is the culmination of two like minded identities who were fated by destiny to make wine together. After working with large companies for many years, the Messrs David O'Leary and Nick Walker amassed over three hundred gold medals and sixty trophies, including the highly coveted Jimmy Watson. Shiraz is treated to a small batch vinification through the action of natural yeasts, hand plunged in a mix of two and four tonnes fermenters for twelve days. Batches remain on skins for a fortnight to enhance tannin complexity, maximising flavour and length, pressed and racked into a combination of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extended term of maturation.
Deep red with purple hues. Virulent and complex on the nose, savoury elements of ground pepper and olive combine with sweeter characters of dark blackberrry, red liquorice and spice. The oak is all French, subtle and integrated, gently enhancing the layers of fruit. A palate that's concentrated and powerful, persistent and long, juicy tannins and balanced acidity.
