Wallace By Ben Glaetzer 2007
This peppery blend of Shiraz and Grenache is densely packed and has plenty of meat on its bones but gets great lift and structure from its high toned acidity. Super bright in the mouth with velvety mulberry and blackberry fruit and spicy currents of clove and black pepper. Made by winemaker Ben Glaetzer who has taken the reins from his father, Colin.
Blueberries and other soft fruit come through on a slightly muted nose - a product, no doubt, of the Grenache element in the blend (20%). Upon entry, the wine is round, supple and very Rhone-like in texture - without the over-powering (but equally appealing) nature of Glaetzer's other higher-end offerings. A medium, very satisfying blueberry cordial finish. This is a wine that begs for lamb or wild game as a pairing. A masterful wine for the price and highly recommended Barossa Oz.
Three and a half glasses
