Winemaking patriarch, Colin Glaetzer, established his own label in order to make the wines he’s passionate about - benchmark Barossa Valley reds. The creation of the revered Barossa Valley Estates 'E & E Black Pepper Shiraz' was one of the pinnacles of his thirty year career. Colin’s family also boasts more than its fair share of winemakers, including his oenology-trained wife Judith, twin brother/winemaker John and five winemakers among the couple's three sons and their wives! With such a pedigree, it's not so surprising that the young Ben Glaetzer has rapidly risen to become a world class producer of Shiraz and is regarded as the new 'Maestro of the Barossa'.Tasing Notes: A brilliant effort by Ben Glaetzer. For the 2007 vintage several parcels of fruit from old vines that would have normally been used in the Anaperenna blend have been used in the 2007 Bishop providing it with additional intensity and generosity. The older vines being better equipped to handle the drought than younger vines. Opaque black purple colour with black purple mauve hue. Superb nose. Violets, liquorice allsorts, vanilla, blackberry and spice. Mouthfilling palate, layers of flavour – liquorice, blackberry, vanilla, confectionary, ripe plum and cedar with black pepper building on the back palate. Fine grained tannins, perfectly balanced. Exceptionally long aftertaste of vanilla, blackberry, liquorice and spice.
Cellar 3-4 years (2012-2013)
Star winemaker Ben Glaetzer sources all of his fruit for this label from the Ebenezer district in northern Barossa Valley. Many knowledgeable experts consider this the finest sub-region of Barossa.
The opaque purple-colored 2007 Bishop is 100% Shiraz sourced from 80- to 120-year-old vines and aged for 14 months in seasoned French and American oak. It offers up an alluring bouquet of lavender, spice box, and wild blueberry leading to a layered, opulent wine with tons of succulent blue fruit, soft tannins, and rich flavors. Give it 2-3 years to more fully blossom and drink it from 2010 to 2022.
