Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of shiraz and grenache in a thoroughly modern way. Rich, peppery old-vine shiraz dominates and adds weight, texture and fleshy
richness to the palate. Grenache provides complex tannins and fresh acidity to the mix, with luscious red cherry and hints of aromatic spices and anise.
The grenache fruit was powerful and robust in 2008, allowing it to play a strong role in the final blend. The percentage of Grenache has dropped to 20% for this release to allow for this intensity.
"This refreshing, exhuberant style trumpets its cherry, rhubarb and raspberry fruit, but tempers to fine tannins and deft balance of acidity, finishing with harmony. Drink now through 2016. 3,500 cases made."
"The 2008 Wallace is a blend of 80% Shiraz from 45-130 year old vines and 20% bush vine Grenache from 75 year old vines located in the prime Ebenezer district of Barossa. Yields were a meager 1.5 tons per acre. Dark ruby-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of smoke, violets, incense, black cherry, and blueberry. The wine has a bit of underlying structure, medium to full-body, plenty of sweet fruit, but a slightly compact finish. This pleasure-bent effort is an outstanding value.
