Wolf Blass Yellow Label Shiraz 2015

Only partially oak fermented, 21%  in both French and American. Wine maker is Marie Clay.

Wolf Blass, Yellow Label, Shiraz, South Australia 2015


There’s the expected plums and but also unexpected animalistic/washed rind cheese meatiness for some complexity. Mocha fills the void. I think the alcohol may be a little higher than stated, but it gives a silky, slippery feel to the wine before an okay amount of tannin, pepper and spice. Missing a little bit of flavour and personality, but satisfactorily made.

RRP: $17.99

Alc: 13.5%
