Glaetzer

About Glaetzer

The Glaezter family emigrated from Germany in 1888 and became some of the first viticulturists on record to settle in the Barossa Valley. Colin Glaetzer established Glaezter Wines about a century later focusing on producing premium wines and his son, Ben, runs the winery today.

 

Barossa is famed for its old vines, and Ben sources fruit from vines so old that they are non-irrigated, reaching their roots down tens (sometimes even hundreds!) of metres to seek out groundwater far below the surface.   These vines are naturally very low yielding produce fruit of great concentration. The vines are located in Ebenezer, a sub-region of Northern Barossa within a stone’s throw away from other Barossa heavyweights such as Torbreck and Standish. In fact, Henschke’s famed Hill of Grace vineyard is located just over 12 km away!

 

Glaetzer Wines

The symbol on the label represents the all-seeing eye of Horus and comprises of 6 parts that represent the 6 senses (touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell and thought), which Ben seeks to engage through the Amon Ra. He certainly succeeded with James Halliday, who found this vintage “full-bodied to the point where it’s difficult to give any guidance for cellaring time”. Equally enthralled, Morgon Dunn of Winepilot noted that “the room fills with the kinetic aromas of dark chocolate, ground coffee, mint and crushed blue flowers – this is before you’ve poured a glass”.

Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2004 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

Still looking fresh and complete, Glaetzer's 2004 Amon Ra Shiraz is full-bodied, rich and dark-fruited, with black cherry and plum fruit forming the base, while grace notes of baking spices, mocha and cedar play about the edges. Creamy and velvety in texture, with a long finish, it remains at its peak and should continue to drink well for another decade or more.

Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2005 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

Deep garnet in color, the 2005 Amon-Ra displays aromas of pure black currant cordial, dark chocolate, violets and toast with a hint of raw meat and touch of Indian spices. Full-bodied with a taut and muscular frame defined by firm grainy tannins, it is still very youthful and offers fresh, crisp acid that retains nice vibrancy through the long finish. Drink it now until 2020+.

Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2013 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Amon Ra has youthfully toned-down notes of blackcurrants, blackberry preserves, plums and cracked pepper with nuances of licorice, dark chocolate, cedar and black earth. The palate has wonderful balance and elegance for its commendable concentration and fullness, with tons of muscular fruit and spice layers framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with great persistence.

Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

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. It's full-bodied, characterized by notes of grilled meat, espresso, black olive, cassis, vanilla, baking spices and an undercurrent of loamy earth. Yes, it's 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.

Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2018 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

Certainly one of the best vintages of young Amon Ra I've ever tasted, the 2018 Amon Ra Shiraz is a stupendous effort. From old vines in the Ebenezer section of the northern Barossa, it starts off with a whirlwind of mocha, blackberry and dried spices, then actually gets more red-fruited as it sits in the glass. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated without being jammy or overdone, the wine finishes long and savory, framed by dusty tannins and mouthwatering black olives. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer compares 2018 to 2004 (which continues to drink well). Expect the 2018 to drink well young, but easily age through 2035, perhaps longer.

Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz 2019 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96+)

The 2019 Amon Ra Shiraz is 100% Shiraz and 100% from the 2019 vintage, as Ben Glaetzer felt it—unlike many previous vintages—didn't need to be freshened with a small proportion of younger wine. From old vines in the Ebenezer district of the northern Barossa Valley, it offers classic notes of blackberries and spice, framed by hints of cedar and vanilla (it's aged in 100% new oak hogsheads, mostly French). It's full-bodied yet crisp, supple but tight and really long. Offering lovely dark fruit, hints of espresso and black olive, it finishes mouthwatering and firm. Give it some time in the cellar and drink it from 2025 – 2040.

2017

Glaetzer Anaperenna 2017 (6x75cl) Dominated by over 80% Shiraz from the Ebeneezer district of the Barossa Valley, the splash of 18% Cabernet Sauvignon more than fights its corner, adding a graceful aromatic profile of mint, eucalyptus, cocoa powder and refined structure.

As a result, this "quintessential Australian blend" is velvety and rich but never cloying. Fine and balanced but never lacking in power. Simply put, it is a masterpiece from the 'Baron of the Barossa' and we strongly recommend you add a case (or two) to your collection.

Glaetzer Anaperenna 2018 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

For the 2018 Anaperenna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon, Glaetzer blended in 18% Cabernet Sauvignon to give the wine increased fragrance and length. The nose is smoky, slightly herbal and marked by sweet cedar- and vanilla-tinged oak, but it also offers great cassis and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the flavors are kept nicely in check by fine-grained tannins. This wine has it all: terrific intensity, complexity, length and texture.

Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz Barossa Valley 2005 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (91-93)

Readers should think of it as a French Vacqueyras on steroids. From 60-year-old vines in the Ebenezer district of Barossa, the 2005 Shiraz Bishop sees mostly French oak. It reveals a dense ruby/purple hue, beautiful, attractive notes of pepper, spice box, blackberries, and currants, and amazing richness as well as surprising elegance and definition. It can be consumed over the next 10-15 years.
