  • Wolf Blass The VIEW – Wine Show Winners | Winemaker Q&A | Vintage Update | Special offers

    Welcome to the March edition of The View.

    Vintage is in full swing at the winery and we’ve started crushing and fermenting some of our very best fruit from local vineyards. This month, Senior Red Winemaker, Steve Frost, brings us up to date with the red intake from our South Australian wine regions.

    While our winemaking and vintage teams are hard at work during the busiest month of the year, we’d like to congratulate them for some outstanding trophy results for our White Label Piccadilly Chardonnay 2012 and Red Label Shiraz Grenache 2013 at the recent Sydney Royal Wine Show.

    In this edition, we also welcome the newest member of our winemaking team, John Ashwell, with a winemaker Q & A, and we celebrate the simple perfection of seasonal pears with a mouthwatering dessert recipe for Poached Pears with Passionfruit Syrup.
    2014 Macquarie Group Sydney Royal Wine Show Winners

    Congratulations to our winemaking and viticulture teams for an outstanding result at the 2014 Macquarie Group Sydney Royal Wine Show. Wolf Blass White Label Piccadilly Chardonnay 2012 was awarded a gold medal and two trophies - for Best Chardonnay Trophy at and Best White Wine. This follows hot on the heels of being awarded the Best Chardonnay Trophy at the prestigious Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition in November last year.

    And another wine that continues to wow the judges is our Red Label Shiraz Grenache, with the 2013 vintage taking out a gold medal and the Trophy for Best Value Red Wine. To celebrate, we’re offering a very special price this month, making it even more outstanding value! See our Wine Club Specials below.
    John Ashwell Winemaker Q&A

    Introducing the newest member of our winemaking team, John Ashwell has a passion for the wine industry which was nurtured early on by his parents through their own interest in grape-growing and their determination to establish a successful boutique winery south of Stanthorpe in Queensland’s Granite Belt. The range of wine styles and winemaking options at Wolf Blass are a constant inspiration to John, driving him to ensure that every wine under his care is the best it can possibly be.

    2014 Vintage Update
    Senior Red Winemaker, Steve Frost

    The 2014 vintage is proving to be unique in its own special way, similar to, but not quite the same as some years of the past, and very different to just as many others. So far it has thrown up challenges on many fronts, but these are challenges we all relish. We've experienced a cool and windy flowering period and record-breaking heat waves, broken by a record rain event with a long cool spell to follow. We're definitely going to deliver wines with their own special personality.
