Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2019

CELEBRATING 25 YEARS, AND THIS ICONIC BAROSSA SHIRAZ IS AS GOOD AS IT HAS EVER BEEN!

 

"As a measure of Amon-Ra’s consistent greatness, this wine has not once dipped below 95 points from Wine Advocate in the past 11 vintages (in fact eight of those scores are 96 points or above).

Exceptional old-vine Shiraz fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub-district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Vine age 50—130 years old. Yield 2 tonnes per hectare. Fermented in one- and two-tonne open fermenters, hand-plunged three times daily. Matured for 16 months in 100% new oak hogshead barrels (95% French and 5% American) and matured on lees to maintain fruit profile and animation. Bottled unfiltered to ensure minimal intervention with the wine’s natural characteristics.

Deep purple in youth, this wine will evolve to a lovely dark red hue with maturation. The nose displays blood plum showing hints of dark cherries and dried garden herbs. The palate is rich and mouthcoating yet with the balance, finesse and elegance that epitomises Amon-Ra. An earthy spice complements the brooding dark fruit flavours. This is a wine that will develop beautifully with long-term cellaring through to 2045." - Glaetzer
