Palate Profile

Wolf Blass has a heritage in the Barossa Valley dating back over 40 years and his pioneering spirit can be seen in this latest incarnation of the classic Grey Label. A landmark blend of Cabernet and Shiraz from the Langhorne Creek region which was championed by Wolf himself shows big, bold, typical Wolf Blass characters of fruit cake, dark fruit and soft, engaging tannin structure.

Critic Awards

This is an outstanding red wine, and it is easy to see why it is a classic. The fruit has gorgeous intensity: you'll find blackberry, mulberry and dark plum alongside chocolate and savoury oak. The palate is full-bodied and plush, with all the elements in balance. The wine will improve with cellaring, though it will be hard to resist in its youth.

Deep, youthful, concentrated red/purple colour and a rich, ripe, spicy, smoky and graphite-scented bouquet. The wine is full-bodied and flavoursome, with slightly clunky tannins and a core of fruit sweetness balanced by a drying finish. A big, solid, gutsy shiraz which needs more time.

A powerful bouquet, the heavy, ripe fruit aromas tussling for dominance with equally emphatic oak in the long established Grey Label style. Not to be overlooked is the regional influence, with Langhorne Creek providing its own savoury, earthy, chocolatey characters. You can enjoy this now but it has time on its side.

Great value for money

The wine is powerful but tannins are soft and the dark red fruit presents itself perfectly.
