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.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»

Domenico Scarpantoni originally worked for Hardy Wines and Seaview. To this day, Scarpantoni is very much a family business with every step of production, from viticulture to the packaged product done entirely on the premises. The last two decades have seen major expansions to the Scarpantoni Estate, the quality of the wines, whilst excellent in earlier vintages, has reached new highs. There have been renewed plantings of premium Shiraz, a wetlands development, a fully renovated winery and cellar door, and the restoration of the estate's historical homestead. The Scarpantoni family maintain complete control over every stage of the winemaking process, to ensure vintages of the highest standard.
Deep red-purple colour. Aromas of licorice and of cherry, leather and mint and spice characters, followed by leaf and berry aromas. Ripe blackcurrants and plums interweave with attractive cedary new oak and mocha barrel ferment influences, while the palate is generous and smooth - a delightful marriage of ripe fruit with sweet oak.
