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 Read more »

  • 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

  • Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$40. I somehow got convinced that it was valid to put this into a Cabernet lineup, must have been the growing effect of the earlier wines. I have to confess to finding the Glaetzer wines rather boring and one dimensional, I have cleared out my stock of Glaetzer wines. The 2010 is black purple in colour, staining the glass with every swirl. In... Read More

  • Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I must admit I've not had many Syrahs in my overall experience drinking wine but I have drunk some good ones and some bad ones. This particular Syrah has to be the best wine I've ever tasted. Aged it for 5years before I popped it open. Amazing deep garnet colour, on the nose you get hints of mocha, macerated cherries and a little spice(cant real... Read More

  • Ben Glaetzer Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon Anaperenna 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Barely translucently red - almost opaque - in the glass. Spiced figs, sugared cranberry, plum and a dollop of Crème de Cassis creep to the nostrils. The depth of the effect on the olfactory nerve is quite pronounced - foreboding of the eventual effect on the palate. The mouth-feel is strong and manly: warm, and slightly sweet - like a kind o...

  • 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

  • Glaetzer Barossa Valley Shiraz 2004

    Snoothrank:

    A terrific Shiraz with lots of body, prunes, blackberries, spices and subtle menthol. Enjoy with seasoned foods and grilled red meat. Read More
