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.

  • Ben Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I've been holding this muscular boy for a couple of years now; time to taste: the colour is dark (like the Arctic Ocean with blood added) and the nose is of fine English Jam - maybe a strawberry-dark cherry blend of some description. Unfiltered, the wine is cloudy, but entry is a positive hedonic high with slightly sweet ,menthol notes (high alc... Read More

  • Amon Ra Ben Glaetzer Sra Barossa Valley South Australia 2009

    Snoothrank:

    We reviewed this wine a second time on 5/14/2011 with a different set of members in our group. Here are notes for this second tasting: An ocean breeze, with a faint aroma of seaweed, announces the aromatic journey of this luxurious wine. The sea breeze soon embraces herbal, fruity, floral and woody scents, including hints of thyme, oregano, lic... Read More

  • Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Australian Shiraz 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful and intense in fruits. Complex and ample structure with notes of vanilla and chocolat. It grew continually in the decanter during 1 hour openning to new nuances. Very persistent in mouth (more than 35 seconds in my count). One of the 5 best wines I've ever tried! Read More

  •  Since my queries of this nature are usually tagged to the end of other threads of (somehwat) related nature, I figured I'd start one of dedicated nature. Hopefully this'll be easier to search for and come back to in the future.Here's an offer from HDH in Chicago. Anything of particular interest, or of relatively good pricing? This offer seems a...

  • Amon Ra Ben Glaetzer Sra Barossa Valley South Australia 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This is a rich, complex wine that evolves nicely over several hours. It has the classic Barossa nose with florals, herbs and spices joining licorice and mocha, with a blueberry and pomegranate core. The palate opens with slightly bitter dark and blue fruits in the center, featuring blueberry, cassis, cranberry and pomegranate, as licorice and ... Read More

  • When I visit some wine shops, I happen to notice that most Australian wines are shiraz. Is shiraz primarily more popular in Australia? What's your favorite shiraz? Read More
