Expert Reviews

Undoubtedly, some strange things happen to wines at this price point between harvest and bottling, and perhaps counter intuitively, I find it’s usually the Cabernet blends that perform better than Shiraz at the lower price points.

Berries, plum, vanilla and cocoa. Medium bodied with smooth fleshed out tannin, even acidity and a creamy berry finish. A lick of dried herb and wood comes through in the aftertaste. This is well ripened and well turned out. Rating 87 - Drink by 2016, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (MAY/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright purple with attractive red hues.

Aroma

Lifted varietal characters of plum, cherry and a hint of mulberry leaf.

Palate

A medium-bodied wine that boasts a soft, jubey mid-palate of red fruit with a subtle but persistent structure from the Cabernet. The Merlot offers plush mid-palate weight and helps give the wine a smooth, rounded mouthfeel.

Food Matching

Great with chargrilled steak & mushrooms or lamb tajine with date & almond couscous.

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.
