Makers’ Project is a range that celebrates expertise and innovation in wine. It builds on Wolfgang Blass’s original vision to create wines that taste great – wines people want to drink. These are wines our winemakers love to make, wines that highlight innovative quirks and winemaking processes that make them not only tasty, but fresh, original and exciting.
Makers’ Project Shiraz Grenache was pressed from its skins early, before the end of fermentation. This technique perfectly captures the plush, fresh fruit flavours, creating a soft, juicy wine with a velvety texture and a long, silky-smooth finish.
Pack contains 12 x 375ml bottles.
“A new line from Wolfie and co, this is an ‘early press’ red. Great to see the shape shifting for WB. I’d drink this one cold. It’s slick and slippery, sweet fruited at its core, Red Frogs and raspberry liquorice with a chomp of tannin and a lift of freshening acidity. It’s got great, plush and rich feel to the palate, feels lip-smacking at its close. Easy drinking red in the nouveau/joven/drink now camp. Good stuff.”
Blueberry, black cherry and spice.
Plush, soft and juicy. Mediumbodied with fresh fruit flavours, a velvety texture and a long, silky-smooth finish.

Home to the oldest vines in the country, and no less than 18 wine growing regions, South Australia accounts for almost 50% of Australia’s wine production. The Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Coonawarra are well known for their world class reds, with Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley and Eden Valley praised for their exceptional Chardonnay and Riesling.
Wolf Blass winemaker Marie Clay discovered wine through her Dad's stellar collection of South Australian reds. Like all good fathers, he stocked up on the birth year of his two daughters. In Marie's case, that just happened to be a lovely bottle of 1979 Wolf Blass Black Label, which was cracked at her 21st birthday.
After graduating in 2000 from the University of Adelaide with first Class honours in Oenology, Marie received the Southcorp wine scholarship. This allowed her to travel and work with the company’s best winemakers across the Australian wine regions of Coonawarra, Barossa, Sunraysia and Great Western. Following these experiences, Marie worked with Lindeman’s for 4 years at both their NSW and Victorian wineries, overseeing white wine production.
In December 2006 Marie joined the Wolf Blass winemaking team in the Barossa, where she relished the opportunity to work with premium red wines from vineyard to bottle. She loves working in a modern winery that allows the fruit's potential to be realised. Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale, the heartland regions of the Grey Label range, are particularly close to her heart.
