- 2004 Wolf Blass Chardonnay Gold Label - Australia, South Australia, Mount Lofty Ranges, Adelaide Hills (7/20/2006)
A fairly deep yellow; greenish youthful tint. The nose is rather oaky, citrussy, with the typical nutty fruit. The palate is full bodied, but with decent acidity, oaky, but balanced enough. Long aftertaste where the malo come more to the fore than I would have hoped. Ok.
- 2004 Wolf Blass Shiraz Bilyara - Australia, South Australia (7/19/2006)
Very dark red. A sweetly berryish nose with lots of tar - rather like cough syrup but still staying on the pleasant side - barely! The palate was sweetly fruity, confected, not too pleasant. It was all about the fruit. Thankfully the alcohol was lower (13%) than in most other lower end Aussies I've seen here. Not bad if you want a cheap, innocent bbq wine and not disappointing for the low expectations, but not anything to write home about.
