Wolf Blass Brown Label 2012 Classic Shiraz
Deep crimson. Lifted dark fruits of mulberry, blueberry, blackberry and satsuma plum combine with undertones of dark chocolate and mocha oak to create a wine of complexity and interest. Opulent richness and depth of fruit provide both intensity of flavour and density on the palate, with mocha oak supporting the fruit and imparting a creaminess in texture. Tannins are fine, powdery and layered, building through the mid-palate and coming together to support a long, lasting finish. A generous wine of power and intensity, yet with finesse, character and eminent drinkability.

James Halliday: "A sentimental return to mark Wolf's 80th birthday after being discontinued after '01; a blend from McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and the Barossa Valley. Tremendous drive and persistence to its black fruits; tannins and oak are mere adjuncts." 96 pts
