Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz 2017
100% Shiraz, cropped at 3 tonnes per hectare. Vines aged 35-120 years old. Fermented in 1- and 2-tonne open fermenters, hand-plunged two to three times daily. Extended maceration was employed to enable good tannin development, so the wine is soft and approachable early. Maturation on lees for 16 months in new (40%) and 2- to 3-year-old oak hogsheads (90% French, 10% American).
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
