Wolf Blass Red Label Chardonnay Semillon 2017


Wolf Blass Wines is one of Australia’s greatest success stories. From a humble tin shed in the legendary Barossa Valley in 1966, Wolf Blass has grown to become one of Australia’s most successful and awarded winemakers. I have a lot of affection for this brand – but had read recently that the winery was on the verge of bankruptcy. The two grapes Semillon and Chardonnay are fermented and matured separately; the Chardonnay spends six months on French oak while the Semillon spends six months on lees.

Tasting notes: Pale yellow colour. Not subtle. ‘New-World’ but rather ‘old-fashioned’. Not overly oaky, and has a little complexity from the blend. Reasonable value.
