Winery Tasting Notes


The appearance is dark and opaque with inky red edges and thick viscous legs coating the side of the glass.


The initial bouquet is massively intense. On pouring the first glass the characters of smoked meats and delicious deli specialties fill the air. Behind the savoury oak is luscious dark berry fruit and fragrant olive tapenade. The overall balance is kept in check with subtle hints of dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee grinds.


The intensity follows through to the palate with the savoury smokehouse flavours bursting onto the tongue ahead of ripe dark plum fruit and earthy herbs. The mid palate has plump juicy tannins which give a silky voluptuous texture. The mouth-feel builds with a dry earthiness leading to a long finish with deep herbal notes and warm chocolaty aftertaste.

Food Matching

This is a big wine with dominating flavours, so match it with richly flavoured dishes like beef Wellington baked in pastry with a creamy pate and mushroom sauce or a rare fillet mignon wrapped in smoky bacon.

Cellaring Potential

This is a classic Barossa Shiraz. It will deliver outstanding drinking for over a decade if cellared well, however it doesn’t require cellaring to be eminently enjoyable. From release it offers an intense flavour experience which will develop and gain complexity as it matures in bottle.


We recommend decanting or splashing prior to consuming. To enhance the wines flavour allow at least 30 minutes breathing time.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Another great Barossa red from Chris Haustler, intense black fruits and dark chocolate and coffee on the nose, it also has some savoury characters. Generous tannin but not overpowering, it has a smooth and balanced, really pleasant texture on the palate. The finish is long and lingering, showing a great agening potential.

In 1977 he joined Wolf Blass Wines as a Cellar Hand.Some two years later, recognising Chris’s management talents, attention to detail and natural ability to assess flavour profiles in pre-fermented and pre-finished wines, he was promoted to Cellar Master and in 1990 appointed Wolf Blass Winery Manager.

Working closely with Wolf Blass and the Senior Winemaker, Chris was responsible for the blending of many of the early Black Label, Grey and Yellow Label wines so sort after by today’s discerning consumers. In the decade preceeding Chris’s retirement in 2009, he oversaw the careers of many of today’s talented and well known winemakers.
