When Qantas approached Wolf (aka Wolfgang Franz Otto Blass) back in 1985 and asked for an exclusive label for their Business and First Class customers he went away and crafted some seriously smart Riesling – he named it Gold ‘cos he knows that you’ve got to have bling to fly first class and slurp top notch wine at high altitude.
Or maybe he called it Gold because he liked to keep it simple and colour code all of the wines in his range, which might have something to do with him leaving school at the age of 15!
This is the recently revamped Gold Label “Regional Reserve” using fruit from across the South Australian region. For this latest 2021 release they’ve gone to McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek to source high quality fruit and then aged it in seasoned new French and American oak.
The guys at Wolf Blass recommended pairing with seared Kangaroo fillet or sizzling Mongolian lamb. We reckon a good lump of roast beef or lamb will do the trick! Drink now or cellar over the next 4-5 years.
