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.
A Rich Bishop full of bold dark fruits and possessing a structured core.
Superb totally opaque inky black crimson colour with a dark crimson red black hue. Lifted aromas of liquorice and dark plums are followed by some vanillin confectionary and light pepper scents. Rich and boldly structured the palate is decked out with still youthful but opulent flavours of blackberries, dark plums and liquorice with underlying vanillin cedar and pepper. Excellent length with fine grained yet firmly structured tannins. Long aftertaste of blackberries, dark plums, liquorice, vanillin cedar and pepper.
Cellar 6-8 years.
