The Glaetzer mission is to focus, simply on the production of small-volume, super premium Barossa Valley wine. Glaetzer's Bishop is always a great expression of Barossa Shiraz made in an elegantly structured and approachable style.
The 2021 Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz is again crafted from old-vine fruit from the famed Ebenezer sub district of the Barossa Valley, with vine age between 35 - 120 years old. Vibrant purple in the glass, with aromas of cut plum, dried spice and dark chocolate. It has great mid-palate freshness with flavours of blackcurrant and mocha. Finely tuned tannins provide structure and length.
"92 Points. A tight-framed, densely packed young Shiraz that delivers some interesting herbal and savoury intrigue. Deep purple-crimson hues. Promotes a textural, savoury warmth rather than the usual upfront, ripe, sweet Barossa fruit which immediately makes it stand out. Blackcurrant and aniseed aromas mix with black olive briny notes, herbs, earth and smoked meats. The role of wild fennel, rosemary, thyme together with a splash of amaro-like bitters across the middle palate is a delight to take in and savour, contributing a touch of herbal charm as well as a long, dry finish. Maturation was in French and American oak for 16 months which sees a neat tannin line in place. All up, Bishop is a Barossa Shiraz that delivers a fair whack of flavour with individual style for a fair price. Drink: 2023 - 2032. $33"- Jeni Port, winepilot.com.
