Amon Ra is Ben Glaetzer’s flagship Shiraz named after an Egyptian God who was considered to be the King of all Gods. According to Ben Glaetzer the key to Amon Ra Shiraz is balancing the fruit and tannin extraction rather the maximising it – “the fruit has such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them.” Having said that 2014 was a very low yielding vintage resulting in a spectacularly rich and concentrated Amon Ra. Fruit was sourced from a range of vineyards, aged between 50-130 years old, with a strong emphasis on fruit quality, rather than simply selecting parcels of fruit because they were from old vines. The wine was matured for 16 months in 100% new oak of which 5% was American and 95% French. It was bottled unfiltered.
An Extravagantly Rich and Lavish Amon Ra
Outstanding colour displaying a super saturated black as night core with a very deep dark purple black hue. Hedonistic ripe blackberry, liquorice, dark plum and more subtle dark chocolate aromas waft from the glass overlaying some well integrated lightly toasted vanillin oak, a hint of mocha and spice. Incredibly rich, lusciously textured and possessing amazing length yet perfectly balanced, the palate boasts exceptionally concentrated flavours of succulent ripe blackberries, liquorice and dark plums. Subtle dark chocolate infusions, lightly toasted vanillin oak and spice follow on. Velvety yet well-proportioned tannins frame the massive core of opulent fruit. Stunning power with an aftertaste of ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark plums, subtlety toasted vanillin oak, dark chocolate and spice that seemingly goes on forever. Eminently drinkable now but will cellar 8-10 years.
