Overview

Spicy Adelaide Hills Shiraz enjoys a small inclusion of Viognier, which intensifies colour, enhances texture and contributes exotic aromatics and flavour. Maintaining the tradition of matching the right varieties to the right regions, the Gold Label Shiraz Viognier delivers on this promise.

Gold Label Shiraz Viognier is an intensely fragrant wine redolent of bright berry fruits, ginger, exotic spices and roasted meats. The palate is fleshy, with dark berry fruits and warm spices supported by restrained French oak. Fine, silky and luscious, this is a stylish, elegant, medium-bodied wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant crimson with purple hues.

Aroma

Wolf Blass Gold Label Shiraz Viognier is an intensely fragrant wine showing lifted fragrant red berry fruits with notes of spice, cold meats and subtle nutty complexity. The Viognier is lifting but not dominant - adding ginger and floral aromatics.

Palate

Fleshy, dark berry fruits and warm spice fill the palate supported by subtle oak influence. The Viognier component adds an evenly textured, silky mouth-feel with fine velvety tannins.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy now or cellar over the next three to five years.

Food Matching

Shiraz Viognier matches well with duck, pork, lamb, venison, roast beetroot and ham. Gold Label Shiraz Viognier is great with Glazed Spiced Ham; Chinese Barbecued Pork Buns; or Crispy-Skinned Roast Duck Salad with Star Anise and Pickled Plums.

Award Winning Winery

Wolf Blass Wines has grown from a humble tin shed to become one of the world's most successful and awarded wineries.

Wolf Blass was created in 1973 when Wolf started his own business, purchasing a 2.5 acre land holding with an old army shed outside Nuriootpa, at the northern end of the Barossa Valley.

In researching the name Bilyara, Wolf learned it was the Aboriginal name for "Eaglehawk" and given the eagle was also the national emblem of Germany, he decided his wines would carry the Eagle - a legacy that continues today and into the future.

Wolf Blass Wines won three consecutive Jimmy Watson Trophies with Black Label, generating substantial publicity and hype. In 1999, Wolf Blass Black Label made history, becoming the only wine to win the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy an unprecedented four times.

From this time onwards, growth has been impressive and inspiring with Wolf Blass winning a grand total of more than 3,000 awards at national and international wine shows, including most recently, International Red Winemaker of the Year at the 2008 International Wine Challenge in London.

Wolf Blass Wines have a tradition of quality, character and consistency from the refined and elite Platinum Label, and the majestic and complex Black Label through to delicate Rieslings and crisp Chardonnays.
