Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2017
Exceptional old vine 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 1-and 2-tonne open fermenters, hand-plunged 3 times daily. Matured for 16 months in 100% new oak hogshead barrels (95% French and 5% American). Matured on lees and bottled unfiltered.
Amon-Ra Shiraz is an iconic wine that epitomises my passion to create wines that are full-flavoured, multi-layered and intense but still elegant, stylish and finely balanced. In the glass it's a brooding, vibrant black with bright purple hues. The nose has absolute purity, with black fruit aromas complemented by notes of fragrant spice. The palate is seamless, rich and full-bodied with black plum flavours intermingling with dried spice and finely balanced supple tannin. Impressive yet restrained. This is a wine that will develop beautifully with long term cellaring over decades. Alcohol 15%; pH 3.5; total acidity 6.6g/L. – Ben Glaetzer
