From the renowned and very talented winemaker Ben Glaetzer comes one of Australia’s finest red wines (97 Points Robert Parker). Glaetzer is at the front of the new generation of winemakers in Barossa, who has regularly been producing award winning wines. All fruit for Glaetzer wines is taken from the small sub region of the northern Barossa, called Ebenezer. Aromatically complex and expressive thanks to the long growing-season it has a beautifully-scented aromas of black fruits, sweet wood spices, chocolate shavings and purple flowers. On the palate it is full-bodied and rich, yet nicely balanced by natural acidity, blackberry fruit is interwoven with mocha, star anise, graphite and blueberry pie to display a sensationally complex palate. The finish is long, rich and silky with the ripe tannins framing the fruit and coating the palate.

Produced from 100% Shiraz, the 2010 Amon-Ra displays a deep purple-black color and aromas of cedar, baking spices, lavender, chocolate and vanilla over a core of creme de cassis, black cherry pie and dried plums. Very full bodied and densely packed with layered warm berry, earth and spice flavors, it has a solid backbone of medium to firm fine grained tannins and crisp acid, finishing long with some hints of dried Provence herbs and black pepper coming through. Consider drinking it 2014 to 2024+. 97 Points Lisa Perrotti-Brown.
