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,.. Timeless mystique of langhorne creek»

Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale.

Grapes are hand harvested to modest baumes and natural sugar profiles. Picking at such levels creates a wine with sufficiently low alcohol, displaying a balance and delicacy that is often lost in Australian Chardonnay. The fruit is immediately taken to the winery, cooled overnight and whole bunch pressed. Components are barrel fermented in a combination of new and prior use French oak (Latour, Dargaud & Jaegle, Seguin Moreau and Cadus). A third of the parts are inoculated for a course of malolactic, building texture and introducing creamyness while lowering the natural acidity. Voyager is treated to regular battonage over the course of several months in French oak barriques.
Pale straw hues. Delicate aromas of white flower, citrus and nectarine over subtle flinty notes. Plenty of nutty flavours and mealy notes from the lees stirring and quality French oak, ripe stone fruits, tropicals and dried pear. Lovely soft creamy textures dominate the palate, a wonderful purity of fruit is perfectly countered by a savoury, mineral edge.
