- Cellar 3 - 4 years (2008-2009)
- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
Made by the father & son winemaking team of Colin & Ben Glaetzer, this is the family's flagship wine. This limited production wine is made with fruit sourced from 80-year-old, dry grown vines in the Ebenezer district of the Barossa.
A total saturation of black colour. Aroma of liquorice, spice and blackberry. The palate has magnificent weight and depth of flavour, with concentrated spice, blackberry, black pepper and liquorice flavours emerging. Velvet smooth tannin structure. The black pepper forms the backbone of this wine and runs all the way through to a very long aftertaste. Limited Stocks.
Cellar 3-4 years (2008-2009)
The Glaetzer Barossa Valley Shiraz (94-95-plus points) has another dimension of concentration and richness, with layer on layer of black fruits, licorice and chocolate fully justifying the use of almost entirely new French (80 per cent) and American (20 per cent) oak. It is anchored on 80-year-old dry-grown vines from five or six growers in the Ebenezer district.
- James Halliday, The Weekend Australian
The finest of this trio is the flagship cuvee, the 2004 Shiraz produced from 80- to 150-year-old dry farmed vineyards in the northern Ebenezer sector of the Barossa. Aged 16 months in French oak and American hogsheads, this larger-than-life, fascinating wine (cropped at .25 to 1 ton of fruit per acre) offers big, sweet, blackberry and cassis characteristics intermixed with notions of smoke, licorice, and pain grille. A wine of amazing extract, richness, and full-bodied power, with great purity as well as balance, this stunning offering should age effortlessly for 15 or more years. Filled with personality, it is a tour de force in Barossa Shiraz.
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.
