Palate Profile

Glaetzer Bishop is a true expression of Barossa Shiraz that is elegantly structured with a long finish. Exceptional old vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Vine age 35—120 years old. Yield 3 tonnes per hectare.

An explosion of brooding dark tones with bright cassis and coffee bean hints on the nose. Subtle richness on the the palate with flavours of dark plum and blackberry intermingled with dark chocolate and dried spice. Generous yet restrained tannin provides exceptional palate length and persistence.

"This is 100% Barossa shiraz sourced from vines that are between 35 and 120 years old. It’s remarkable that such old vine fruit could be included in a wine at this price, but hey, who’s complaining. In this hot year those old vines kicked in and provided some excellent fruit that doesn’t have a hint of being cooked or out of whack in that important flavour sugar trade-off. It gets a reasonable amount of oak with about 40 % new and largely French for about 16 months. Loaded with that mix of black fruits and dark plum with a typical Barossa coffee grinds character. Generous grainy mouth feel with a sustained finish. Another cracking good wine at a mighty good price." 94 Points Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot

Critic Awards

Loaded with that mix of black fruits and dark plum with a typical Barossa coffee grinds character. Generous grainy mouth feel with a sustained finish. Another cracking good wine at a mighty good price.

Features slight herbal overtones to the black cherry and black olive notes. It’s medium to full-bodied on the palate, supple, generous and reasonably concentrated, folding in hints of peppery spice and mocha shadings on the velvety, mouthwatering finish.

Deep red/purple colour, with a rich smoky, char-oak and dark chocolate aroma. The wine is full-bodied and rich in the mouth, with lots of smoky char oak again but also rich, ripe fruit. Long carry: the tannins are well judged and provide serious structure. A lot of wine for the money.
