Wolf Blass, Black Label 2002
A wet winter and cool, long growing season plus the introduction of screwcap and Malbec (7%) to this year’s Shiraz-dominated blend (53%) produced this bright, juicy wine with an edge of tannin. It has a touch of liquorice and crushed coriander seed to its blackberry, cherry and raspberry fruit. A whisper of milk chocolate speaks of two years in fine new French and American oak. Lighter than other vintages, yet youthfully intense.
