Wolf Blass, Black Label, South Australia, Australia, 1979
Drinking Window: 2016 - 2018
A hot summer followed by a mild, wet spell resulted in a late, flavour-packed harvest. An impressively rich, tarry nose and palate shows dense layers of panforte dried fruit, mocha, perfumed cured leather and coconut. As it builds in the glass, fleshier notes of sweet cassis and plum emerge. This decadent blend of 75% Cabernet, 25% Shiraz was matured for 20 months in American oak.
