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..

Geoff Johnston studied in France where his strong interest in the unique Petit Verdot Bordeaux varietal first evolved. Johnston's initial trials with the grape have expanded to over ten hectares of mature vines. A pure varietal wine from two Pirramimma estate properties with the focus on a backbone of the best parcels grown to the Katunga estate vineyard, planted exclusively to Petit Verdot vines grafted on own rootstock, grown to sandy loam soils. Grapes are hand pressed and vinified in the original Pirramimma concrete vats before transferring to a selection of French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments, followed by two years maturation.
Deep purple colour. Violets on the bouquet, blackberries and briar, kirsch cherries and cigar box oak. Powerful concentrated palate exhibits spicy plum and forest floor, tangy cherry, hints of mulberry and vanilla bean. The long lingering tannins and subtle oak are beautifully balanced. A wine with great length of flavour and sustained finish.
