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.

All fruit is picked by hand off vines yielding two to three tonnes per hectare. Grapes are de stemmed and crushed into the press for four hours of skin contact, extracting optimal flavour and textures while minimizing phenolics. Batches are de-juiced with only slight pressure prior to an overnight cold soak. Components are racked to fermenters and inoculated for a controlled vinification at at 18˚C to 20˚C. Ferments remain on lees for several weeks to fill palate structure before being stabilised. A passage to cross flow filtration preserves freshness and exemplary varietal fruit character.
Light colour, straw green hue. Vibrant grassy and gooseberry aromas continue through to the palate. Fresh, zippy acid holds the animated fruit structure together, giving considerable length.
