The distinctive labels of the Glaetzer portfolio hold special significance when you view this stunning collection of wines as a family affair. The entry level Bishop Shiraz is named in honour of Ben's mother, Judith (Bishop being her maiden name). The label bears the sign of Venus, which has come to represent women and feminine energy - though this wine is hardly feminine.
Glaetzer sources fruit for the Bishop from the Ebenezer district of the Barossa valley from low yielding 35 year old & 120 year-old vines. He finds the fruit from younger vines contributes freshness & vibrancy, while Shiraz from the older blocks provides structure and depth. Maturation took place in a combination of 90% French oak and 10% American oak for a period of 14 months of which 40% was new oak.
Ben Glaetzer classifies 2010 as one of the vintage highlights of the last few decades.
Totally opaque black purple colour with very deep black purple hue. The nose displays aromas of ripe blackberry, liquorice and confectionary followed by some subtle vanillin oak and spice end notes. The palate is full bodied with an explosive flavour profile of rich ripe blackberry and liquorice followed by some confectionary and spice with a peppery back palate. Very fine grained, slightly dryish but balanced tannins provide the wine with excellent structure. Superb depth with long persistent blackberry, liquorice & blackpepper aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years (2016-2017).
