If there's one way to indulge ourselves, it’s certainly with wine, and no one knows that better than Australian winery, Wolf Blass. Established in 1966, this premium winemaker has been delivering exceptional quality wines for over 50 years.

Much of Wolf Blass’ success lies in its ability to synergise traditional quality winemaking with modern-day approaches. Whilst employing successful old-age methods, innovative techniques such as the hygienic stainless steel open fermenters have been developed along the way, creating more room for the experimentation of flavours while also providing safer ways to produce high quality wines. This level of craftsmanship is why in one year alone, the producer was awarded three trophies, two gold medals and three silver medals at the 2018 Lipman Karas Great Australian Red competition, as well as the coveted Riedel Trophy for the Best Winery of Show.

When it comes to wines, there's very little Wolf Blass’ chief winemaker, Chris Hatcher, doesn’t know.  Not only has he made 39 trophy-earning and 218 gold medal-winning wines, his attention to detail in the winery has made him one of Australia’s leading winemakers. As an avid wine and food lover himself, Chris knows all the components for a divine drinking experience. He believes that much of it lies in the wine's ability to pair up with a perfect food match.

 “Tasting premium food is a way to indulge yourself, especially for wine lovers who appreciate new flavors. When the food is paired with the wine which suits its flavour, it will generate the pleasure to savour the meal impressively.”

The brand also pioneers in making different levels of label colour, from red for beginner consumers to yellow, gold, black and the platinum label. The level of wine is determined by the variety of grapes that were used to generate complexity. By virtue of the brand’s extensive level range, a wine can be just as perfect for someone less educated about wines as it is for a connoisseur—so don't worry if the only thing you know about wine is that you love to drink it.

Wolf Blass is available at Villa Market, Wine Cellar Gourmet Market and Foodland. Learn more at wolfblass.com.
