Glaetzer "Wallace" Barossa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and Grenache in a thoroughly modern way. Rich, peppery old-vine shiraz dominates and adds weight, texture and fleshy richness to the palate. Grenache provides complex tannins and fresh acidity to the mix, with luscious red cherry and hints of aromatic spices and anise. The Grenache fruit was powerful and robust in 2008, allowing it to play a strong role in the final blend. The percentage of grenache has dropped to 20% for this release to allow for this intensity. Wallace combines the best of the two varieties to create a spicy, savoury, food friendly wine.

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
