2010 Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz
'Amon' and 'Ra' were two deities rolled into one to become the Sun God of ancient Egyptian mythology. With this release Ben Glaetzer has created a wine of mythic proportions from a vintage he describes as "one of the highlights of the last few decades".
Super saturated totally opaque inky black colour with very deep black crimson hue. The nose displays an impressive aromatic profile of blackberry, liquorice and dark plum followed by some vanillin confectionary, mocha and spice showing a touch more intensity than the Anaperenna at this stage of its early life. Imposing palate presence and richness, yet not over the top, combining finesse with power. Very generous, the palate delivers mouthfilling flavours of blackberry, liquorice, confectionary, light toasted oak and black pepper. Exceptional length with precision perfect fruit, acid & tannin balance. Velvet smooth perfectly integrated tannin structure. Very long and persistent aftertaste of blackberry, liquorice, confectionary and black pepper.
Cellar 8-10 years (2019-2021).
