Wolf Blass Platinum Label Shiraz 2014
You Save 33% ($76)
VINEYARD REGION Medlands Vineyard, Dorrien, Barossa Valley
VINTAGE CONDITIONS The 2014 growing season at Medlands began with good winter and early spring rains. A windy spring and November frosts reduced yields, while late spring and summer were ideal, with warm days and cool nights. Rain and cool conditions in mid-February evened out and extended the ripening period, resulting in intense and varietal Shiraz with excellent colour, fruit purity, and structural line.
Rating: 95 points from James Halliday
GRAPE VARIETY Shiraz
MATURATION After fermenting to dryness on skins, the wine was pressed and racked to 62% new and 38% one-year-old French oak barriques for 20 months’ maturation, enhancing complexity, elegance, length and structure.
COLOUR Vibrant rich purple.
NOSE Characteristic lifted fruit aromas of blueberry, blackberry, boysenberry and blood plum unmistakably express the Medlands Vineyard terroir, with underlying savoury notes of
bittersweet chocolate, freshly ground coffee and warm, fragrant oak spice adding intricate layers of complexity.
PALATE Complex and opulent, with the fine, layered structure, elegance and finesse
we have come to expect of the Medlands Vineyard. The palate is laden with pure, rich, dark berry flavours, given tight focus with fine, spicy French oak. A sleek, silky texture,
definitive tannin line, and lingering finish give rise to a wine of grace, stature and presence.
