Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of
Shiraz and Grenache in a thoroughly modern way.
Black cherries and winter fruits dominate the nose - which is pure,
lively and captivating. Rich and rounded on the palate, the Grenache
adds blackberry tones and fresh acidity whilst the old-vine Shiraz
adds structure, hints of liquorice and bright fruit.
A spicy, savoury, food friendly wine.
"(75% shiraz and 25% grenache, the latter from bush vines that are reportedly 80 to 120 years of age; no new oak): Vivid ruby. Candied red and dark berry, pipe tobacco and mocha aromas accented by woodsmoke, cinnamon and black pepper. Fine-grained, sappy and focused, with penetrating, firm flavors of ripe black raspberry and cherry Silky and sweet on the lingering finish. "
International Wine Cellar
"Bright, relatively light colour; a lively, light- to medium-bodied wine with red cherry and raspberry nuances and enough tannins to provide structure without overwhelming the fruit. Top class elegance.
