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. Glaetzer sources fruit for the Bishop from the Ebenezer district of the Barossa valley from low yielding 35 year old to 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 16 months of which 40% was new oak.
A superbly concentrated Bishop with bold rich flavours backed up by a robust structure.
Magnificent inky black colour with a deep dark purple black tinged hue. Intense blackberry, dark plum and liquorice aromas tinged with earth drift from the glass underpinned by vanillin cedar and hints of pepper. Rich and well endowed the palate has a rich core of succulent fruit that shows great purity with opulent liquorice, ripe blackberry and dark plum flavours filling the mouth over spicy vanillin cedar and blackpepper. Outstanding concentration and power finishing with an exuberant youthfulness and slight earthy inkiness. Robust but well concealed tannins providing a great framework. Long conclusion of spicy ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark plums, vanillin cedar and earthy pepper.
Cellar 6-8 years.
