Amon-Ra is a wine produced by Ben Glaetzer at Glaetzer Vineyards in South Australia. The wine is named for the Egyptian god whose temple was the first to offer wine for its worshippers. The eye on the label is the symbol of Horus (wedjat, “whole one”), which ancient Egyptians used for protection. The six parts of the eye represent the six senses. Ben Glaetzer created the wine with all the senses in mind, hoping to appeal to each in their own way.

  • Try AMON-Ra from Oz, too. Greg's Quilceda Creek and Amarone seconded. 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape also qualifies.Do we want to talk about late-harvest Zins?  ;-)Another approach is to take this list and target specific regions and (older) vintages that might fall under that price limit. If not these vineyards, maybe some others in close proximity t... Read More

  • That's OK, because too many Japanese restaurants are still going for a 5x markup over what they pay the importers for the wines (including Aussie). Needless to say I don't frequent those places as a matter of principle, and if I like their food I let them know they're screwing up on the wine (and they wonder why they can't even unload a single c...

  • DInteresting selectionHad the Semillon couple of times - it is really strange ... growers/farmers in the regionAmon Ra is certainly a big strong wine - I have found that recent vintages are better than older ones - although i note the 2006 was 14.5% cf 2014 at 15% they have also switched in about 06 from American Oak dominant to French Oak dom...
