Dark cherry red. Lifted, fresh and lively, offering an array of ripe summer berries and dark spices, with just a touch of subtle oak lurking in the background. A lovely balance of summer berries and light spices with soft tannins adding length on the palate. This medium bodied wine has an attractive fleshy mid-palate and juicy freshness on the finish, ideal for early drinking enjoyment.
The President’s Selection Gold Label range honours the traditional Wolf Blass philosophy of blending outstanding fruit from the finest South Australian regions to create wines of quality, character and consistency.
Cabernet Sauvignon, selected for its fruit intensity, soft, rich mid-palate, length of flavour and fine tannin structure, was fermented on skins until the optimum release of colour and flavour was achieved, without excessive tannin extraction. Selected batches completed fermentation in barrel to build complexity and mid-palate texture.
A very natural winemaking process, in which the alcoholic fermentation is followed naturally by malolactic fermentation in steel casks. The ageing period of the wine before the bottling is brief, without passage in wood: in this way, the wine maintains and displays all the organoleptic characteristics of the grape, along with great freshness. It is a young, enjoyable wine that does not require ageing, which should be drunk in the first two years of life
The Fifth Leg Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a serious wine in a fun package. Shiraz provides the backbone to this wine with plenty of plum, pepper and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon delivers dark cherry and blackberry fruit, with nice grippy tannins, while Merlot fills out the mid-palate with plenty of juicy, fleshy red fruits.
A Rose with plenty of strawberry and raspberry fruit flavour, there is crisp and crunchy acidity and a savoury edge that keeps everything in balance. Enjoy Fifth Leg Rose as an aperitif, with Spanish tapas, Italian and Middle eastern cuisine, it's ideal where there is plenty of bread to break and food to enjoy.
