2005 Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz Magnum (1500ml)

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$350.00 Bottle
  • ABV 14.5%
  • Closure: Cork

A powerhouse of Shiraz. Again, like the Godolphin, this wine is unfiltered. Opaque black purple colour with black purple hue. Perfumed nose, with layers of violet, spice, liquorice and vanilla. The palate flavours are very pronounced, with a very spicy back palate. Mouthfilling flavours of black pepper, blackberry, spice, and plum overlaid with cedar. The tannins are fine, yet slightly chalky but perfectly balanced. Very long aftertaste of black pepper, spice and plum. Cellar 5-8 years (2011-2014) Alc/Vol: 14.5%

Other Reviews…. The profound 2005 Shiraz Amon Ra is fashioned from a dry grown, 100- to 110 year-old vineyard, and spends 14 months in a combination of 100% new French and American barrels as well as 300-liter hogsheads. A saturated purple color is followed by scents of creme de cassis, incense, licorice, black raspberries, graphite, and sweet wood. It unfolds beautifully on the palate to reveal terrific richness, full-bodied power, great definition, and lovely elegance. This exquisite Shiraz is still young, but it possesses a degree of accessibility. It should age for two decades. It is a superb example of cutting edge winemaking being utilized on ancient Shiraz vines in the Barossa.
