WINE OF THE WEEK

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Wine -

THE Pre­mium Wolf Blass reds are as good as and as con­tem­po­rised as ever. With the strength of the west's caber­net and red Bordeaux blends, the tra­di­tional, more heav­ily (Amer­i­can) oaked and fuller, softer and plumper South Aus­tralian caber­net shi­raz blends are not the iconic names that they re­main in the east­ern states. The 2012 Wolf Blass Grey La­bel is a crowd pleaser. “Full, plump and dense and then comes the soft­ness and ap­peal. “Lovely length and then the sub­tle re­fined and soft tan­nined fin­ish.” One of the very best and most sat­is­fy­ing at un­der $50. 18.5 points.
