Powerful and intense in fruits. Complex and ample structure with notes of vanilla and chocolat. It grew continually in the decanter during 1 hour openning to new nuances. Very persistent in mouth (more than 35 seconds in my count). One of the 5 best wines I've ever tried!

Barossa Valley perfection, but very young. If you have the patience and the cellar, pick up this tremendous offering from Ben Glaetzer and hold on to it up to up to 30 years.

Yes, it's as good as you have heard. Crazy dense, concentrated, with many layers of flavor that I will let the winegeeks debate in fruity metaphor, the real accomplishment of this wine is BALANCE! Think about it: Making a dark, extracted, ripe wine from old vines in Australia? (OK, that's good...) Taming all that alcohol and tannin and engineering a wine that has focus, and is velvety, and has an ease about it? (that's Genius!) Great for BIG RED Lover's and probably a great value when compared to other ultra-high rated reds from California and France.

    One of the finest wine I ever tasted. Great nose, great palate and excellent balance.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Wine Advocate "Amon-Ra has become one of Australias icon wines. Made from 100% Shiraz sourced from vineyards ranging in age from 80-120 years and with microscopic yields of 0.5 tons per acre, the 2006 Amon-Ra was aged for 15 months in new French and American oak. The wine is a thick, glass-coating, purple/black in color. The aromas cover a wide range of scents including smoke, vanilla, pepper, Asian spices, coconut, espresso, blueberry, and chocolate. Thick, rich, layered, and complete, this monumental wine offers extraordinary intensity and length. It requires 10-15 years to fully evolve and should easily last through 2040. Hats off to Ben Glaetzer for producing an extraordinary portfolio!"
