Glaetzer 'Wallace' Shiraz Grenache 2015

What do these icons mean?

78% Shiraz (50 ­-80 years old) and 22% Grenache (50–110 years old) sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub-district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Yields are 3.5 tonnes per hectare.

Above average winter rain followed by warm spring temperatures resulted in healthy vines showing significant early bud growth. Mild temperatures during December and January coupled with good end of January rain set up the vines nicely for the ripening period. Harvest started early on 14 February and was completed on 15 April consistent with the normal finishing time. The resultant 2015 vintage wines have deep, vibrant colours with savoury tannins and rich, seductive flavours.

Old-vine Barossa Grenache has a liveliness and structure that does not benefit from oak maturation; ­ oak contact was thus minimised for the Grenache component to preserve the purity of the fruit. The Shiraz was matured for 16 months in 2- to 3-year-old oak hogshead barrels (80% French/20% American).

Medium to deep garnet, a flash of purple on the rim. An enticing nose of dark plum, raspberry and lavender with hints of anise and ground spice. Black fruits prevail with touches of pepper and blackcurrant. Firm, savoury yet rounded tannins balance with brightness and lift.

The Wine Front – It’s from the Ebenezer – what a great name/word – sub-region of the Barossa Valley and quality-wise it’s always there or thereabouts. So too this release. It’s not spectacular but it’s tasty and well balanced. It works/it drinks well. It tastes of ripe plum, raspberry, earth and dried spice and it keeps a good, firm, controlled shape as it progresses through your mouth.
