I couldn’t let this slip by.
The following comments come from the venerable Wolf Blass, 75 years young this week. An outspoken wine industry icon, Wolf is credited with much over his years, yet you wouldn’t know judging by the quality of much of the wines that presently bear his name.
I mean, have you tried the latest Wolf Blass wines? Embarrassing caricatures, weedy rubbish, and commercial shiite, only salvaged by the high quality Riesling & the odd Gold Label Chardonnay & Black Label red.
Yet old Wolf has still got it in him, even if I don’t agree with everything in this excerpt (like making Australia famous for spritzy sweet wines. Erm, no thanks).
