Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
If you wondered why Wolf Blass (the man) pinned his future on Langhorne Creek and on finishing red wine fermentation in lots of new American oak (latterly adding French), simply taste this wine, with all of its generous, soft but explicit varietal fruit, tannins a small, although important, part of the picture.

Good depth and hue to the colour; very powerful, full-bodied with unexpected firm and persistent tannins; may or may not achieve balance with prolonged cellaring.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Opens with the generosity of fruit typical of Langhorne Creek, but becomes much more serious and tight on the back palate and finish; the Jekyll and Hyde characters should merge with 5 years' cellaring, and a very good wine should be the end result. Pointed now, and not for the long life in front of it.

Very good colour; powerful blackcurrant fruit and touches of chocolate; varietal savoury tannins; sure oak.

Very, very close to five stars, this one. A few bucks cheaper and it would have snuck in because this is a very good wine indeed, and representative of the renaissance of the Wolf Blass portfolio. Hard to believe that only a few years ago Wolfie was about as cool as stretch denims. (No, really? Not again...) Well, I have one word for you: Caroline Dunn. Close to the best red winemaker in the country. Two words.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the bouquet shows typical traditional Blass-style strong American oak influence, with overall richness. The palate has plenty of flavour in that sweet fruit and strong vanillin American oak style. You certainly know what you are going to get when you choose a bottle of Wolf Blass red wine
