GLAETZER AMON-RA SHIRAZ 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
From very old vines - up to 130 years - this absolutely stellar Shiraz from Ben Glaetzer is all about quality over quantity. In other words, loads of flavour but not an overbearing style and instead extremely elegant, with beautiful defined fruit and spicy complexity sitting nicely in a perfectly balanced, supple and sophisticated palate. Very graceful now it will continue to age as such for a good while. Hard to imagine a better example of this modern Aussie style.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"In Egyptian mythology, Amon-Ra is considered to be the king of all gods. The temple of Amon-Ra was believed to be the first temple to ever plant a monoculture vineyard to produce wine for the citizens of the temple. The eye on front of the label is the all-seeing eye of Horus or wedjat ("whole one") - a powerful Egyptian symbol of protection. It is represented as a figure with six parts, corresponding to what Egyptians regarded as the six senses; touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell and thought. Ben created Amon-Ra Shiraz to appeal to all these six senses."
94/100 & Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast (2015 Vintage)
"From Barossa's newest generation of superstar winemakers, Ben Glaetzer's Amon-Ra—his top wine—is the label that's gained him the most glory, and for good reason. It's hugely cellar worthy, with a pretty nose of dark cherry fruit, cola, licorice, cocoa powder and a little meatiness in the background. The medium-bodied palate is juicy and restrained, with muscular but silky tannins and a long juicy, savoury finish; The perfect example of the elegant style the latest generation of Barossa producers excel at. While approachable now, it would drink best between 2022–2032."
93/100 Wine Spectator (2015 Vintage)
"Rich, velvety blackberry and plum flavours show toasted walnut and sandalwood accents in this rich and generous red, which is spicy and detailed on the long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2030."
93/100 James Suckling (2015 Vintage)
"This is a heroic, sweetly-fruited cut of Barossa shiraz that has a big wave of ripe boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavour. Sweetly spicy, vanilla-dusted oak influence and an approachable, juicy resolve. Drink now."
