Wolf began working with his first winemaker, John Glaetzer, in 1970, and within a year John followed Wolf to his new Bilyara winery.
In 1973, Wolf really hit his straps by making the first Wolf Blass Black Label. Black Label would go onto win the 1974 Jimmy Watson Trophy, an accolade that is still considered Australia's most prestigious and sought after wine award. This victory helped provide the impetus to start exporting to the world and to establish John Glaetzer in the role of Senior Winemaker. John would go on to become one of the most proficient award winning winemakers Australia has ever seen.
And as if one wasn't enough, Wolf Blass Wines went onto win two more Jimmy Watson Trophies in 1975 and 1976, followed by a record fourth Jimmy Watson win in 1999.
This Wolf Blass Black Spice Shiraz displays warmth and generous black spice with vibrant blueberry and cherries on the nose. It is lavish on the palate with plenty fruit flavours on offer but finishes elegantly with it's smooth tannins and a touch of earthy cedary oak.
