This was a lot more acidic than I remember when I first tasted it, It needs a steak to balance it out. Alone it is ok but a little off balance. Read more

Another knock out from one of my favorite producers from Australia! The Wallace by Ben Glaetzer is named so as it is the old family name of Ben's grandmother Judith whose ancestors hailed from town of Cupar in Fife, Scotland. The wine itself is infusion of two classic grapes, Shiraz and Grenache, from the prestigious sub-region of Ebenezer in the Barossa Valley. Aged in used French and American oak for 14 months this blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Grenache has ripe aromas of cracked pepper, blueberries and toffee. The palate is balanced between the Shiraz, which contributes weight, texture and richness with flavors black berry and blueberry. While the Grenache adds sweet cherry, strawberry and earthy characters. This wine is definitely drinking well now but if you do cellar it would be a very nice treat in about 5 years.

For the price point, this wine is a hidden gem. This wine is produced by the same vineyards that produce the infamous Amon-Ra. Expect a full bodied, lush shiraz that fills your mouth with crushed ripe cherries with a residual cedar note. The tannins are well developed and have strength but are well integrated into the palette. The finish is long and luxurious. Expect a good minute long finish. Really REALLY recommended..

Intense on the nose and smooth on the attack. Then it releases all its pepper and fruit. Balanced, tannins domesticated. And how to forget that long, delightful finish. In BC (Liquor Stores) at CAD 29.99
