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.
Totally opaque black purple colour with deep dark purple black hue. Ripe blackberry and liquorice scents are overlaid by some toasty oak, vanillin confectionary and blackpepper. Ripe, rich and densely concentrated the palate boasts an opulent yet relatively youthful flavour profile of ripe dark plum, blackberry and liquorice overlaid by some toasty vanillin oak with some blackpepper on the back palate. Velvet smooth tannins combine with an opulent mouthfeel. Superb fruit density with very long liquorice, dark plum, blackberry and toasty vanillin oak aftertaste.
