Wallace By Ben Glaetzer 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

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.
