Tasting Notes

A distinctive and characteristic Black Label nose defined by layers of fragrant dark berries and blackcurrant, backed up with deep notes of espresso coffee, panforte and smoky, toastednut barrel ferment characters. Hints of Langhorne Creek mint are evident without being dominant. Classic cigar-box complexity is starting to express itself and is expected to develop further with time.

A complex, multi-layered and mouth-filling wine, with refined yet opulent fruit and a plush, velvety texture. Perfectly ripe spicy blackberry and blood-plum flavours fill out a beautifully balanced palate that’s complexed by integrated mocha oak and finessed with supple, elegant tannins that impart a defined line and exceptional length of flavour.

Accolades & Awards

97 Points James Halliday Wine Companion 

Deep crimson-purple; whereas the '11 had to fight every inch of the way, this wine displays almost contemptuous ease in the way it has marshalled the layers of black fruits and ripe tannins that soak up the new oak inputs. This will be one of the long-lived, great Black Labels.


96 Points Jeremy Oliver 


95 Points Bob Campbell, The Real Review

A blend of wines from Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale. Dense, intense wine with blackberry, dark berry, dried fruits and spicy oak flavours. Softer, richer and more elegant than the 2010 vintage tasted alongside. Impressive red with obvious cellaring potential. 


94 Points Decanter Magazine


94 Points Huon Hooke 

Very deep red/purple colour, with a pungent, intense aroma of chocolate and coconut, vanilla oak. The wine is full-bodied and powerful, with concentration, density and punch aplenty. There is a high-alcohol fuminess and heat on the back-palate and a little syrupiness. It tastes higher than the stated 14.5%. A fairly extreme style.


92 Point The Wine Front 

This Black Label has been about for forty vintages as of this 2012 release. Pretty amazing too. Kudos, Wolfie. Big, bold, powerful wine of immense flavour and impact. Big hit in the bouquet of dark fruit, liquorice, sweet ‘n’ spicy oak character, milk chocolate and faint violet floral character. Smooth journey across the tongue with palate staining dark fruit, spice, peppery wood notes. It’s long in flavour, finishes with light pucker of crushed slate tannin. Nevertheless, it’s pretty darn polished and sleek. There’s an elegance even with the heft, and a longevity that will likely be built on that acidity.


91 Points Decanter World Wine Awards 2017

Dark fruit, flowers, mocha, cream and oak sweep the nose and multi-layered palate. Most definitely a wine built for the future.
