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.

    2008 is the 8th release of Amon-Ra shiraz and the smallest volume since the tiny 2003 vintage - even lower than the 2007 make. To decrease the total make of Amon-Ra once again has been essential to maintain the quality of the wine. The strict fruit selections we have made in this vintage have been rigorous and uncompromising. We are always willing to sacrifice quantity for quality. The key to Amon-Ra shiraz is balancing the extraction rather than maximizing it as the fruit as such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them. At release, the 2008 Amon-Ra is more forward and lifted than the 2007. The difficulty this vintage was harnessing the intensity of fruit, and balancing different levels of ripeness. Harvesting key parcels of excellent fruit before the heat spike was crucial. The Amon-Ra has captured the intensity of fruit of this vintage, and retains its trademark elegance, finesse and balance. Cellaring: 15 + years.

    Amon-Ra Shiraz 2008 - Ben Glaetzer : Amon-Ra Shiraz 2008 - Rotwein von Ben Glaetzer Ein Wein zum Niederknien. Amun-Ra ist in der ägyptischen Mythologie als König der Götter bekannt. In der Welt des Weines macht sich Amun-Ra als führender australischer Shiraz einen Namen. Für die Hüter seines Tempels boten Bauern der Umgebung eigens produzierten Wein an. Fachleute sehen darin die Geburtstunde des kommerziellen Weinhandels. Ob er wirklich so gut war wie der von Ben Glaetzer?Der Amon-Ra Shiraz 2008 funkelt im Glas undurchsichtig purpurrot. Würzig und fruchtig präsentiert sich das Bukett dieses opulenten, sehr raffinierten und unheimlich eleganten Rotweines. Ein Wein mit einem hohen Alterungspotential er kann durchaus 15 bis 18 Jahre gelagert werden. Um sein ganzes Potential entfalten zu können, sollte er mindestens eine Stunde vor dem Genuss belüftet werden.Auf Grund seiner Jahrgangsrarität wird der Wein nur als Einzelflasche verkauft.Weingut: Glaetzer WinesLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: 100% ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,1 g/lRestsüße: 0,8 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (15 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: mindestens 15 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Australien > Barossa Valley

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Jako král všech bohů, Amon-Ra je považován za nejvýznamnější postavu egyptské mytologie. Jelikož je toto víno tak výrazné a majestátní, dostalo se mu cti nést toto jméno. V barvě je velmi tmavé, skoro černé s purpurovými odlesky. Vůně je směsí pepře, švestek a ovoce vůbec. V chuti zaujmou především dokonalé taniny ve společnosti ovoce, nejvíce pak vynikají ostružiny v zajímavé kombinaci s oříškovými podtóny. Víno se skvěle hodí k archivaci, jeho ...
