Glaetzer Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Label Slightly Cellar Damaged 2004
The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. An intriguing nose of chocolate, crushed herbs, cedar, blackberries and smoke leads into a tightly focused palate with fine-granied tannin and incredible density. The finish is fresh and lively, with flavours that linger. The 2004 is very similar to the 2003 although as with Amon-Ra, the 2004 Godolphin is a little larger and will take a little longer to fully integrate. Potential cellaring of 12-14 years.
External Reviews for Glaetzer Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Label Slightly Cellar Damaged
Not for nothing did the 2005 Amon-Ra receive 98 points from the Wine Advocate. It's supple and rich, with a finish that lasted for at least a full minute (broken when I could no longer resist the temptation and had to take another sip!). Amazing complexity - layer upon layer of flavors unfold as the wine rolls around your mouth. Bright cherry deepens into black currant, black berry, toasted vanilla and a smattering of oak, finishing off with deep, black and stinging white pepper spice notes. Absolute perfection!
The 2001 Shiraz, which was aged in 100% new American oak pungeons (foudres), was to be bottled without filtration. It exhibits abundant amounts of concentrated cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with subtle touches of licorice, dried herbs, and smoke. There is great fruit on the attack, mid-palate, and finish as well as considerable glycerin, a compelling opulence, admirable purity, and a long, 30-second finish. It is a terrific, youthful, yet accessible Shiraz to consume during its first 10-12 years of life. This offering was bottled shortly after I tasted it. It will be released in late 2002 or early 2003. The private label of Ben Glaetzer, the Egyptian name refers to a temple that historically was believed to have had the largest vineyard in ancient Egypt.
From a single vineyard in the Ebenezer region, this is simply stupendous stuff. It is a bit Port-like in its rich layers of blackberry fruit, but it also displays great freshness and drive, giving it a juicy, fresh fruit character that's accented even more by dustings of pepper and dried spices. A beautiful marriage of drinkability and ageability; drink now-2020.
Saturated violet. Amazingly complex bouquet of creme de cassis, candied blackberry, fresh flowers, cocoa powder and minerals. Pulls off the feat of being dense and sweet but also bright and lively, with potent dark berry, kirsch and licorice candy flavors that deepen with air. The tannins, if you can find them under the mountain of flavor, are fine-grained and wonderfully supple. This wineandrsquo;s purity of fruit, along with its precision and richness, made it one of the most dramatic wines of my tastings.
