GLAETZER WALLACE SHIRAZ GRENACHE

James Halliday – 95 Points : "Definitely a cut above many Barossa Valley blends, and I like the back label description of ‘decadent yet reserved, rich yet restrained’. I would simply add no confectionary notes, and wonder at the gift horse price."

Josh Raynolds - 91 Points : "Bright purple. Heady, smoke-and spice-tinged aromas of dark berry liqueur, candied licorice and mocha, with a peppery quality adding urgency. Supple, broad and seamless, offering appealingly sweet blueberry and cassis flavors and a hint of vanilla. In a lush, decadent style but not at all outsized. Finishes smooth, smoky and long, with repeating spiciness and velvety tannins. These vines range from 60 to more than 110 years of age."

Ripe old vine Shiraz from the heart of the Barossa contributes weight and texture Grenache adding cherry toffee earthy characters and solid savoury tannins. Will reward careful cellaring for a decade
