Glaetzer Wallace 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A hint of dark cherry from the Grenache component in Wallace provides an attractive floral note to the nose. The palate is rich and full yet supple and fresh. The Shiraz component gives the wine backbone, flesh and body with the Grenache adding a soft, vibrant juciness. Textural tannin components are supported by lively notes of plums and hints of cassis. Dark fruit's, spice and cigar box characters are the hallmarks of this fuller bodied 2012 Wallace. Very approachable in it's youth and will develop great complexity as it ages.

Winemaking patriarch Colin Glaetzer established his own label to create wines he’s passionate about - limited quantities of benchmark Barossa Valley reds. It is the pinnacle of Colin's 30-year career with achievements such as his creation of the revered Barossa Valley Estates E & E Black Pepper Shiraz. The birth of Glaetzer Wines also signalled a new era for Colin’s family which boasts more than its fair share of winemakers. The clan includes Colin, his oenology-trained wife Judith, twin brother/winemaker John, and five winemakers among the couple's three sons and their wives! The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family left Germany on board the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer “Habsburg” and took seven weeks to reach their final destination of Port Adelaide. From here they settled in a country town called Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley where they started their new life in Australia. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley and the current generation is firmly entrenched in the family wine business. Read less
