96 Points - Tyson Stelzer
Long considered one of the benchmarks of Barossa Valley Shiraz, Amon-Ra Shiraz is an iconic wine that epitomises Ben Glaetzer’s passion to create wines that are full flavoured, multi layered and intense but still elegant, stylish and finely balanced.
The 2019 Glaetzer Amon Ra is made from 100% Shiraz from exceptional old vines (aged between 50 and 130 years old) in the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Seamless, rich and full-bodied with black plum flavours intermingling with dried spice and finely balanced supple tannin. Impressive yet restrained. A wine that will develop beautifully with long term cellaring over decades.
"96 Points. Gloss and polish of superb black fruits, framed in superfine tannins are Ben Glaetzer’s hallmarks. He continues to hone his talent at sustaining brightness and freshness, even in northern Barossa shiraz of monumental proportions. This represents one of his finest works yet. Bitter dark chocolate oak holds an enticing finish that ricochets with inky black fruits and licorice. Cork. 15.5% alc. To 2034. $100." - Tyson Stelzer, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
The Glaetzer family has been a part of the Barossa Valley and its viticulture history since 1888. After thirty years of winemaking, Colin Glaetzer established the family winery to create wines he's passionate about - limited quantities of benchmark Barossa Valley reds. Today, his son Ben carries on this winemaking tradition at Glaetzer Wines.
Glaetzer Wines holds a firm belief that the wines are made in the vineyard - a combination of the French notion 'terroir' and Australian vineyard site knowledge. All grapes for Glaetzer Wines are taken from the small sub-region of the northern Barossa Valley, called Ebenezer.
These ancient dry-grown vineyards of the Ebenezer district are an important part of Australia’s winemaking heritage and a living link to traditional Barossa viticulture.
Exceptional fruit from a loyal group of third and fourth generation Barossa grape growers is the backbone of Glaetzer wines, allowing them to produce an impressive range of red wines. This includes the always popular Wallace Shiraz Grenache, Bishop Shiraz and the flagship Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz.
