Why we're drinking this
It’s a delicious, very well made wine. Easy drinking, yet with enough stuffing and poise to impress your inner wine snob. Plus, it’s got a maple leaf on the label, marking 30 years of Wolf Blass in the Canadian market and making it the only foreign wine you're allowed to drink while watching the Olympics.

Tasting note
The classic Wolf Blass fruit-and-wood style has been refined of late. Expect less “fruit-bomb” and more balance and grace, with fresher dark berry fruit, lively acid and noticeable but soft tannins. Delightful to drink!
