Details

Grapes grown in the Ebenezer district of the Barossa. Cola, dark berries, mint chocolate, a little earth, spice and creamy oak. Rich, sweet dark berry set with coal and spice, dry grainy tannin, some nippy acidity, and a dark jubey finish. Sweet black wine, but good within style.


- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front


 

Glaetzer Bishop is a true expression of Barossa Shiraz that is elegantly structured with a long finish. In the glass it's dark red with garnet edges, giving aromas of black cherries, dried spice and blackcurrant. The palate is plush yet focussed, with ripe tannins providing structure to the flavours of blackberry and plum. Great drinking now but this wine will also benefit from 10—12 years of careful cellaring. Alcohol 14.5%; pH 3.46; total acidity 6.68 g/L. – Ben Glaetzer
