Ben Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz is a true expression of Barossa Shiraz that is elegantly structured with a long finish. On the nose this wine had hints of cut plum, dried spice and dark chocolate. Mid palate freshness with flavours of blackcurrant and mocha. Finely tuned tannins provide structure and length. Great drinking now but this wine will also benefit from 10—12 years of careful cellaring.
Exceptional old vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Vine age 35—120 years old. Despite well below average rainfall and warm conditions during the growing season, the vines remained in healthy balance with increased bunch numbers. Heavy rainfall in late January followed by ongoing mild days and cool nights allowed ideal ripening conditions. The fruit then matured with an early harvest.
