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..

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines... Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»

Based in the Murray Darling region, the Zilzie winemaking team take regular trips to the Barossa Valley, inspecting the health of vineyards and munching on the fruit as it grows on the vine to isolate parcels of ultra fine Barossa Shiraz. Harvests from choice vineyards are separately crushed and vinified. Ferments are pumped over three times daily to extract good colour and the softest tannins. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed before the free run and pressings are transferred to a selection of French oak barriques for a year's maturation, before assembling into a wine exhibiting excellent depth of colour, richness of palate structure and complexity of flavour. Alcohol 13.5%
Deep crimson red with purple hues. Concentrated dark fruits and pepper spice with vanillin and cedar oak characters. Full bodied with rapberry and licorice, anise, blueberry and spice flavours complemented by fine supple tannins before a toasty, vanillin oak finish.
