Glaetzer 2016 Vintage Release

The Glaetzer family has been part of the Barossa Valley and its viticulture history since 1888. After 30 years of winemaking, Colin Glaetzer established the family winery to create limited quantities of super premium Barossa Valley red wines. Today Colin's son Ben makes unique and elegant wines which are regarded as classics and unmistakably Barossan. All fruit for Glaetzer Wines is taken from a small sub district of the Northern Barossa Valley called Ebenezer which produces exceptional fruit from very old vines. The softness and elegance of Ebenezer fruit coupled with Ben Glaetzer's winemaking style results in generous wines with great depth of flavour that are also elegant, multilayered and finely balanced.

2016 has proved to be an outstanding vintage for Ben Glaetzer. The wines have great balance from the long relatively cool growing season. These wines age beautifully too, a 2002 Amon-Ra drunk this year was outstanding, just entering peak drinking, but with plenty of life ahead.

Both of these wines are also available under bond. Quantities are very limited.

Glaetzer 'Amon Ra' Shiraz 2016

Australia

Joe Czerwinski
2018 Advocate Review Issue #238, September 2018:

Dramatic, intense and powerful, the 2016 Amon Ra Shiraz recalls the 2004 in its youth, crammed with layers of fruit, complex, savory elements and rich, velvety tannins. Itís full-bodied, characterized by notes of grilled meat, espresso, black olive, cassis, vanilla,
baking spices and an undercurrent of loamy earth. It is unapologetically big and bold, the product of a warm, sunny climate and ripe grapes, but it does show a sense of decorum, restraint and elegance on the long finish. 96/100

Glaetzer 'Anaperenna' Shiraz-Cabernet 2016

Australia

Joe Czerwinski
2018 Advocate Review Issue #238, September 2018:

Bigger, richer and darker than the 2015, the 2016 Anaperenna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon is 84% Shiraz and 16% Cabernet. Not for fans of shy, delicate wines, but they are neither clumsy fruit
bombs. Pleasantly multifaceted, with complex notes of charred beef, black olive and asphalt to blackberries and cassis, all underscored by loam, vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied, hugely ripe
and balanced with supple tannins and enough acidity on the long, velvety finish to balance the ledger. 95/100
