Special notes

Wolf Blass is originally from East Germany. He studied viticulture and oenology at the University of Würzburg. These studies earned him the title of "Masters of Wine"". In 1961, he emigrated to Australia where he worked as a sparkling wine consultant. In 1966, he founded his first vineyard domain in Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley. In 1986 he acquired a 50% stake in the Australian Bottling Company, including its production of sparkling wine. The merging of the major Mildara group, lead to the creation of the Mildara- Blass group in 1991. In 1996, the group was taken over by Fosters, the brewery giant. Currently, Wolf Blass is the ambassador of winesthat bear this name. The Red Label line is a symbol for a standard of first class wines offering good value for money.

    The Wolf Blass Yellow Label Cab Sav is a great Australian wine. It is full bodied with a nice strong flavour, but is also smooth drinking and does not leave any bad aftertaste. This 2012 variety is great for drinking now, and is a very good price. Highly recommended.

    Der Yellow Label von Wolf Blass existiert seit über 40 Jahren. Dieser fruchtbetonte, schmackhafte Cabernet ist ein echter Klassiker.
