Grape VarietyShiraz/ Cabernet
StyleFull & Opulent
Prominent black cherry, blackcurrant and cream aroma with a savoury complexity: hints at dried herbs, juniper, pine and barbecued steak. Appetising! Already forward, intense and concentrated yet with finesse, superb precision and outstanding length. Less fleshy than the Bishop but a more defined, classier wine. Pure blackcurrant and vanilla flavours on the finish; tannin is present but hidden by the fruit intensity. Intriguingly, a suggestion of minerality on the finish - a welcome attribute for such a concentrated wine.

"With a marriage of sophistication and richness, Glaetzer struck Gold. Opulent fruit of sweet, dark cherries and plums come wrapped in smoky spices. Fresh, balanced acidity, hints of hot chocolate, good depth and structure all add to the complexity. Good now, even in its youth, but certainly with interesting prospects to evolve. A winner."
