Platinum Label Shiraz was first created from the 1998 vintage to honour Australia's most iconic grape variety, shiraz, and the region we call our home, the Barossa. This marriage of region and variety is one of long-standing excellence, so we set out to create the ultimate wine to express both region and variety, capturing the very essence of Barossa Shiraz.
The very best of Barossa Shiraz is expressed within a cloak of lifted fruit and the velvety texture that is the hallmark of Wolf Blass.
Vineyard: The distinguished Medlands Vineyard lies within an exceptional pocket of ground at Dorrien on the central north Barossa Valley floor, a site long renowned for growing outstanding Shiraz. Gently sloping towards the North Para River, the microclimate benefits from cooling breezes flowing down-river from the foothills and enjoys optimum sunlight, low rainfall and low humidity.
Soil: The vineyard is comprised of ancient soils ranging from loamy sands over light clays to sandy loams over medium clays, laid down 5 million years ago when an uplift of the Eastern ranges and a sinking of the valley floor caused the central valley to fill with sediments. This unique terroir results in Shiraz of purity, elegance, tight structure and flawless balance.
Food pairing: Roast rabbit stuffed with thyme
