Wolf Blass Grey Label Cabernet Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Smells of dark, brooding fruits, fruitcake, mocha and mint leap out of the glass to wrestle the nostrils, meanwhile the palate is rich and lush at 15% alcohol, with a solid core of black cherries and plums, some very generous chocolate and cedar oak, a grippy line of tannins, and a rich, warm finish that give the tonsils a cuddle on the way down. Rare meats are the go with this big boy!

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Deep crimson with purple hues.

Nose: A fragrant nose of blackberry and cherry fruits heightened by regional nuances of eucalypt, mint and supported by subtle warm spice and cedary oak.

Palate: The palate is medium to full bodied with layers of bramble berry fruits, fresh eucalypt notes and subtle oak. The wine finishes with finely textured, elegant tannins, displaying great finesse and fruit presence.

Cellaring: This wine will develop with age, softening and mellowing to reward a decade or more of careful cellaring.

Alcohol: 15%

56% Cabernet Sauvignon - 41% Shiraz

Wolf Blass Grey Label Cabernet Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
A blend of 67% cabernet sauvignon and 33% shiraz, with each matured in a mix of new and used French and American oak for 18 months. A high quality wine, reflecting the perfect vintage conditions. Blackberry and plum lead on the bouquet and palate, the oak under control, the tannins ripe and soft.

The Wine Front (2012 Vintage) says
From the red label to the grey label. From the basement to the penthouse. It’s not that far. Rich wine. Dripping with ripe black fruit, peppermint, coconut and spice – a fur coat with all the jewelry hanging out. Full bodied, dense and purple, opulent fruit weight with lavish toast and spice oak – ultra-smooth fine grained tannin and even acidity – though it’s also quite saline with a beef jerky like flavour profile. Has a lot of length and impact, that’s for sure.
