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 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.
