"Excellent wine" - Ray Jordan
The Glaetzer family has been a part of the Barossa Valley and its viticulture history since 1888. The highly regarded Ben Glaetzer is now making some outstanding Barossa Valley reds under his Glaetzer label.
Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and Grenache in a thoroughly modern way. The 2019 Wallace is a vibrant Barossa red wine, packed with bright red-berry fruit, redcurrant and licorice flavours. The soft and rounded Grenache fruit tannin and the savoury finish of Shiraz combine beautifully, while refreshing acidity provides both lift and depth.
"92 Points. I can’t begin to tell you how many times this modestly priced over achiever has come up in big tastings I conduct each year. It’s a really consistent value for money red from the Barossa that always seems to deliver a little more than the price. This is stacked with bright red fruits that emerge from the Grenache component, while it is underpinned by deeper savoury plum flavours of the shiraz. A rich dark chocolate almost biscuit-like base and a touch of spice provide palate substance. The oak mix of largely used French and American is gently layered into the pool of fruit adding further to an already engaging combination. Excellent wine. $23. Drink: 2021 - 2030"- Ray Jordan, winepilot.com.
