Wolf Blass Grey Label 2014

Part of the impending 2017 Luxury Collection release. The Grey Label was first wine to bear Wolf Blass’s name. French and American oak maturation

Wolf Blass, Grey Label, McLaren  Vale, 2014

Layers and layers of licorice, chocolate, baked plum, boysenberry, charcoal and a hint of clove spice. Full, juicy, classy. There’s reams of bitter dark chocolate, tart blackberry and boysenberry fruit, plum and sweet oak edge. Silky tannins cause this to flow easilyMake no mistake, this is a voluptuous rich red but handled with aplomb. Certainly age worthy, but perfect to serve with a low and slow bbq’ed, almost caramelized lamb rump cap.

RRP: $44.99

Alc: 14.5%
