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
The 2002 Barossa Shiraz (from yields of .5 tons of fruit per acre) was fermented in both French and American wood, left on its lees during malolactic as well as for three months after. Aged in 100% new American oak, it will be bottled without filtration. The inky blue/purple/black color is accompanied by aromas of creosote, scorched earth, black as well as blueberries, creme de cassis, and subtle vanilla. The extraordinary aromatics are followed by a wine of size, power, great richness, delineation, and amazing depth as well as intensity. The finish lasts more than a minute. This exquisite 2002 is one of the most compelling offerings I tasted in the overall impressive performance of the 2001 and 2002 South Australian vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. This is a wow-wow wine!
Amon-Ra has become one of Australia's 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.
Firm in texture and deep and distinctive in flavor, offering coffee-tinged cherry and spice flavors that linger against slightly gritty tannins. Needs time to soften and open, but should get there. Best after 2010 through 2018.
Inky ruby. Exotically perfumed nose displays ripe blueberry, boysenberry, cinnamon, wilted flowers and patchouli; smells like a head shop. Chewy dark berry flavors soften with air, ultimately offering superb clarity and a velvety texture. Becomes sweeter on the finish, with slowly building tannins adding an impression of structure to this sexy fruit bomb. This is the style that made the Barossa famous.
This dense ruby/purple-colored wine exhibits a sweet nose of vanilla, graphite, blackberry, and cassis. Full-bodied and pure, with decent acidity and a moderately tannic, silky finish, it is accessible enough to be drunk now, but will be even better in 1andndash;3 years. It should last for a dozen years or more.
Ripe and smoky, a blast of cherry, dried blueberry, roasted meat and licorice flavors that power through the dense, ultraripe finish. A brawny wine that needs time to settle down. Best after 2010.
The profound 2005 Shiraz Amon Ra is fashioned from a dry grown, 100- to 110 year-old vineyard, and spends 14 months in a combination of 100% new French and American barrels as well as 300-liter hogsheads. A saturated purple color is followed by scents of creme de cassis, incense, licorice, black raspberries, graphite, and sweet wood. It unfolds beautifully on the palate to reveal terrific richness, full-bodied power, great definition, and lovely elegance. This exquisite Shiraz is still young, but it possesses a degree of accessibility. It should age for two decades. It is a superb example of cutting edge winemaking being utilized on ancient Shiraz vines in the Barossa.
