Apparently Wolf Blass Grey Label Cabernet Shiraz was the first wine ever made by Wolf Blass back in 1967. Wolf Blass being Wolfgang Franz Otto Blass a German born boy who ran away from school at the age of 15, he was told he had two choices, either go back to school or start a 3 year apprentice with a wine business. Good on ya Wolfie!

Keeping things nice and simple (probably because he left school at 15) Wolf Blass has kindly colour coded his wines. This Grey Label, which used to be Brown, sits above the flash Gold Label and just below the extremely flash Black label. Got it?

Since its first vintage over fifty years ago Wolf has used selected vineyards throughout the Langhorne Creek sub region of South Australia for this one. He loves this region for its ability to produce “fragrant wines of intense flavour and fine structure.”

An absolute classic in the line-up of Wolf Blass wines this is your typical full bodied Aussie number, deep and dark purple-like colour in the glass, packed full of dark fruits wrapped around a smooth texture. Scored an impressive 93/100 by The Real Review’s Huon Hooke who said “Saturated, deep purple/red colour, almost glass staining. The bouquet is oak-driven and again concentrated and dense, as is the palate. The cabernet character is not obvious to the nose, but there is a glimpse of cassis on the palate. Chocolate and mocha. Rugged, slightly chewy tannins command attention. A big, muscular cabernet that is more about house style than grape variety. Great value.”

All class, a prize act from Wolf Blass, this label simply never fails to impress! Gagging for a good lump of meat, something like a lamp shank, delicious. Or chuck it in the cellar and let it develop over the next 10 years or so.
