- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY WINE COMPANION
Bright and juicy with a wonderfully rich mid-palate that maintains balance and finishes with texture. Flavours of dried spice and dark berry fruits add freshness and dimension. Classy Barossa Shiraz.

"From vines 35-120yo in Ebenezer yielding 3t/ha. Open-fermented, extended maceration, then maturation for 16 months in hogsheads (40% new, 95% French). The use of French oak has put a polish on the wine, which has a loyal following."

"Dark berries, coffee and aniseed aromatics. The palate is beautifully polished with dark fruits melding into some cola and sweet spice notes. Hints of iodine and sea-spray give additional complexity, with a bright high line of acidity to carry through the middle. A deeper line of tannins kicks in and carries it long into the finish with a gentle hand"

"A steakhouse staple if there ever was one, if I could name a few more than four steakhouses in Sydney. Anyway, a good, honest red this has long been. Rich yet chewy, bright and sweet fruited. Boysenberry, raspberry, milk chocolate all going on. A touch of minty herb in there, some sweet, woody spice joins in. It feels slurpy and medium weight concentrated but more generous than that as you sip on it. Easy glide to texture with a nibble of grippiness to finish; a quibble on the lemony bite to close and a touch of choc-mocha too. Nicely polished, slurpable red, is the message."
The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley. Current winemaker Ben Glaetzer is making elegant, modern wines albeit within the classic Barossa style. The 2018 Bishop Shiraz is vinified with old vine material (35-120 years old) from the sub-region of Ebenezer.
