Wolf Blass Gold Label Barossa Shiraz 2014 (6 Bottle Case)

Wolf Blass Gold Label Barossa Shiraz 2014 (6 Bottle Case)

The Barossa has developed a reputation for Shiraz with intense fruit characters and rich concentrated palates. Gold Label balances these flavours with elegant French oak to produce a refined, textural Shiraz with bright, fragrant fruit.

Wine Profile
Vintage: 2014
Wine Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Shiraz
Acid: 6.4 g/L
PH: 3.54
Alcohol %: 14.5%
Tasting Notes: COLOUR: Deep purple with crimson hues.
NOSE: An intense and complex mix of rich Satsuma plums and dark berry fruits with a hint of perfumed lift and well integrated oak.
PALATE: Soft and plush with a balanced, textural palate of rich berry and chocolate flavours pulled together with an integrated tannin structure. Good palate length and elegant, structural line.
Vineyard Notes: Shiraz was sourced predominantly from low-yielding vineyards across the Barossa Valley floor, which provide intensity and rich, bright fruit character. This was supplemented by cooler climate Eden Valley fruit contributing fragrance, elegance and subtle spicy notes.

Vintage Conditions:
Good winter and early spring rains set the vines up well, but windy conditions during fruit-set, and unseasonal November frosts lowered yields. Warm days and relatively cool nights in late spring and summer, and a cool mid-February with heavy rains, delayed harvest and lengthened ripening. Reds are rich and varietal with great colour and structural line.
Winemaker Notes: Following crushing, individual vineyard batches were fermented with a mix of plunging and pumping-over applied to allow optimum release of colour and flavour without excessive extraction of tannin. After pressing the wines were racked to 85% seasoned and 15% new French oak for 21 months maturation prior to blending, gentle fining and bottling.
Food Pairing: Gold Label Shiraz is great with roast beef with caramelised onion marmalade, or sizzling Mongolian lamb.

Peak Drinking:
Enjoyable on release or will develop complex, integrated flavours with six to eight years careful cellaring.
