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»

Vines are all closely inspected throughout veraison, exposed bunches are removed to prevent sunburn and canopies reduced to ensure perfect ripening. The vineyard is dry grown and yields are deliberately kept low, achieving harvests of true intensity and concentration of flavour. Shiraz is picked throughout the cool of night to preserve character and complexity. Grapes are crushed and cold soaked for a day in small open fermenters, inoculated, vinified over the course of a week and hand plunged twice daily. Batches are transferred to a mix of French and American oak barrels for completion of ferments and a term of maturation. Only the finest are selected for inclusion into The Stocks. Alcohol 15.5%
Deep and dark, indigo hues. Traces of cigar box, choc mint, meaty and earthy tones on the bouquet. The palate is plush and complex, loaded with a myriad of dark berries and spice. Good intensity of flavour and savoury tannins in balance, ripe, sweet fruit, a complex chocolate berry heart, lovely structure, good middle palate richness which lingers. A Shiraz of splendid fruit concentration, yet a touch elegant, Woodstock recommend thirty minutes breathing followed by decanting.
