WINE OF THE WEEK: Wolf Blass 2005 Grey Label

WOLF Blass made his first Grey Label wines thirty-two years ago, and ever since the company has retained the same philosophy: select the best fruit from the vintage to create rich, full wines that are immediately drinkable on release – but will continue to develop with careful cellaring.

The just-released 2005 Grey Label Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon lives up to the Grey Label reputation, coming from a vintage that was ideal for producing full-flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon. This one’s soft, rich and elegant with subtle oak, integrated tannins and has rich berry aromas with notes of eucalypt, mint, spices and chocolate; pay $40 and enjoy with barbecued lamb fillets and char-grilled vegetables.
