Had a bottle of this last night - gorgeous wine!! Very smooth mellow taste, with plum & cherry flavours. No bitter aftertaste, that I get from a lot of "cheap" wines, & no hangover this morning!!!

Typically retails at about 7.99 in most supermarkets, but is on offer in Asda at 5.99 at the moment. Grab it while you can!! Beer Beer Beer Beer

Wolf Blass Wines International was born in 1973 when Wolf started his own business, purchasing a 2.5 acre land holding with an old army shed outside Nuriootpa, at the northern end of the Barossa Valley. John Glaetzer joined the company and from 1974-1976 Wolf Blass Wines won three consecutive Jimmy Watson Trophies, the Black Label generated substantial publicity and hype.

From this time onwards growth was impressive with Wolf Blass Yellow Label and Riesling becoming Australia's top selling red and white wine. Exports first started in the mid-1970s to New Zealand, Fiji, Hong Kong and Singapore and in 1984 Wolf Blass Wines became a publicly listed company.

By the end of 1990, the number of National and International awards totalled an incredible 2,575 comprising:

135 trophies
712 gold medals
812 silver medals
869 bronze medals
47 diplomas

Wolf's amazing run of show awards outside the Jimmy Watson Trophy includes:
Best red wine in Adelaide Show (Montgomery Trophy) in 1978-1983, 1986-1988
Best red wine in Sydney Show 1981-1983 and 1985
Most successful red wine exhibitor in National Shows 1980-1988

Under the guidance of Chief Winemaker Chris Hatcher, the steady hand of veteran John Glaetzer and the contemporary influences of Wendy Stuckey, Caroline Dunn and Kirsten Glaetzer, the award total for Wolf Blass now stands at over 3,000 awards at international and Australian wine shows and includes an unprecedented fourth Jimmy Watson Trophy for the 1998 Black Label at the 1999 Royal Melbourne Wine Show.

In 2001 The International Wine and Spirit Competition recognised the achievements of Wolf Blass, with an award for the Best Australian Wine Producer.

As they have for almost 30 years, Wolf Blass wines continue to delight wine lovers all over the world.
