Wolf Blass Grey Label Langhorne Creek Cabernet Shiraz 2019
A pretty good example of why Blass – the man – turned to Langhorne Creek all those years ago in the pursuit of supple, approachable, and generously proportioned wines for immediate drinking. This has the indelible stamp of Langhorne Creek all over it. The nose shows a slightly leafy eucalyptus character which seems to be regional. The palate is smooth and seamlessly structured which is totally in line with Langhorne Creek’s reputation for drinkability. Fine chalky tannins and well-weighted oak merge into the opulent yet slightly elegant fruit base. It is then brilliant and bright with a little liqueur chocolate on the palate for good measure.
