Merlot South Australia
Yellow Label builds on the success that Wolf Blass has enjoyed after many years of perfecting a pure Merlot, to produce an everyday wine of quality, consistency and charm. Yellow Label represents a soft and flavourful Merlot with gentle tannins and mouthfilling varietal plum fruit flavours. Grapes are sourced from some of the finest vineyards in South Australia, highly specialised to yield harvests of Merlot which are second to none. Perfect with lamb and a treat alongside juicy roast pork and crispy yorkshire pud.
Wolf Blass continue to lead the nation as Australia's most enjoyed red wine, while commanding similar adulations as one of our most recognizable labels around the globe. Grown to the most splendid South Australian vineyards, Merlot has been the keystone to some of Yellow Label's most memorable vintages. Following the harvest, grapes are removed from the bunch stem and gently pushed through rollers to split the berries and release juices. Following a de-stemming and the crush, traditional inoculation, fermentation and cap management techniques are employed. A component is treated to French oak, adding further depth of flavour and complexity. Alcohol 13.5%
