Wolf Blass 2015 White Label Chardonnay
Piccadilly Valley, Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Given the longstanding success of its red wine portfolio, it can be easy to overlook the white and sparkling wines produced at Wolf Blass. But the increasing strides behind the White Label Chardonnay program suggest Blass has another icon in the making, a stablemate for the Medlands Platinum Shiraz and Black Label blend. Since narrowing its focus to the higher altitude Piccadilly Valley district in the Adelaide Hills region, which enjoys a longer, cooler growing season than is the norm, the winemakers have dialed in their efforts for a white with a generosity of flavour and crisp, minerally character. Highly recommended.
