- Cellar 3 - 4 years (2008-2009)
- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
Opaque black purple colour. The nose is initially restrained, delivering notes of vanilla and plum. The palate is explosive – black pepper, spice, plum and dark chocolate flavours emerge. Fine dry tannins. Excellent length and depth. Very long aftertaste of black pepper, plum and spice.
Cellar 3-4 years (2008-2009)
Next up the chain is the Bishop Shiraz (93-94 points), predominantly sourced from 30 to 60-year-old vines in the Ebenezer sub-district of the Barossa, but with some 80-year-old vine contribution. It is a very lively wine, with an exuberant mix of blackberry, spice and mocha, supported by savoury tannins underwriting the structure. The 20 per cent new French and American oak contribution melts into the background. Accessible now, it will develop for 10 to 15 years.
- James Halliday, The Weekend Australian
The 2004 Bishop (100% Shiraz aged 14 months in both hogsheads and small barrels) is fashioned from some of Ben Glaetzer’s “younger” vines (only 40-80 years old). A spicy, peppery, earthy, cherry, blackberry, and licorice-scented bouquet is turbo-charged, soaring from the glass. This full-bodied, savory, heady, rich wine boasts impressive balance, concentration, and overall mouthfeel.
One of the stars in the Epicurean portfolio, the young Ben Glaetzer is establishing a reputation for high quality in South Australia, not only for the wines from his home winery, but also for his brilliant efforts under the Amon Ra and Mitolo labels. These are small volume, artisinal efforts that capture the pure essence of old vine Barossa Shiraz and Grenache. This 2004 was tasted just prior to bottling.
