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 Shiraz brings backbone, flesh and body to the wine with the Grenache adding a soft, vibrant juiciness. In 2018 the blend is 72% Shiraz (50-to 80-year-old vines) and 28% Grenache (50- to 100-year-old vines). Exceptional old-vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub-district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley.
"93 Points. A 72/28% blend from Glaetzer's stomping ground of Ebenezer, the vines 50 and 100yo. Grenache had minimal oak contact, the shiraz matured in used hogsheads for 16 months. It's Glaetzer style, pure and simple: love it or leave it. $23. 14.5% alc."- James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
"It’s easy to come at and easy to like, no burrs or hassles, just a bundle of sweet, spice-laden fruitiness with a little grip, decent sense of freshness, quilt-like satiny plushness and a modest but appealing finish. The sweetness builds up but doesn’t overbear, but it’s notable, and the counter point in saline, tangy acidity lingering does its best in a counter. It feels like an upmarket BBQ wine and fits the bill well. 91 Points Tasted: July 20 14.5% alc. $23 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2026" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
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.
