Argentinian barbecued T-bone with chimichurri sauce and crispy potatoes or slow-braised saltbush lamb with plums, ginger and star anise.
Matured in fine seasoned and new French and American oak for 20 months to incorporate further layers of complexity.
Lifted dark fruits of mulberry, blueberry and blackberry combine with brioche-like 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. Subtle oak supports this dense fruit and provides and extra layer of complexity and a creaminess in texture. Tannins are powdery and layered, building through the mid-palate and coming together to support a generous, long finish.
The original Wolf Blass Brown Label Shiraz was first released in 1975, a blend of Shiraz from Langhorne Creek and the Barossa Valley. The wine came to be known as Brown Label 'Classic Shiraz', evolving into the finest Shiraz blend of the vintage, with fruit selected from the year's three most outstanding regions. Batches of fruit from each vineyard were fermented separately in small open-top fermenters for 7 to 10 days, allowing optimum extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Pumping over and plunging were utilised to work the cap, and build structure and length. Some batches were pressed off skins to complete fermentation in barrel, building mid-palate texture, while others remained on skins until dryness, creating wines with great length, persistence of flavour and tannin finesse. After 20 months oak maturation, each batch was carefully assessed before blending, to create a truly synergistic wine that brings together the finest attributes of Shiraz from each viticultural region.
