A distinctive and characteristic Black Label nose defined by layers of fragrant dark berries and blackcurrant, backed up with deep notes of espresso coffee, panforte and smoky, toastednut barrel ferment characters. Hints of Langhorne Creek mint are evident without being dominant. Classic cigar-box complexity is starting to express itself and is expected to develop further with time.
A complex, multi-layered and mouth-filling wine, with refined yet opulent fruit and a plush, velvety texture. Perfectly ripe spicy blackberry and blood-plum flavours fill out a beautifully balanced palate that’s complexed by integrated mocha oak and finessed with supple, elegant tannins that impart a defined line and exceptional length of flavour.
Wolf Blass proudly commemorate the 40th vintage release of Black Label and celebrate its iconic standing as a benchmark of Australian winemaking excellence. With the release of the 2012 vintage of Black Label, this is their 40th consecutive vintage and one of the real icons of Australian wine. Those 40 years go back to the first vintage in 1973 when Wolf won the Jimmy Watson Trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show. Since that vintage, so for 40 vintages, they have won more than 64 trophies and nearly 300 gold medals. Black Label, over a very long time, has shown not only its incredible quality, but consistently, year in year out. Langhorne Creek - McLaren Vale
