RATINGS

95James Halliday

Deep purple-red; achieves lusciousness, length and intensity of flavour without resorting to excessive alcohol; great balance and mouthfeel; very good length and equally well-balanced oak.

93Robert M. Parker Jr.

A blend of 80% Shiraz (from 85-year-old vines) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (from 60-year-old vines). It represents a beautiful marriage of power and elegance.

93Vinous / IWC

The nose offers an explosively aromatic array of sexy red and dark berry scents accompanied by vanilla, sandalwood, cola and baking spices. Precise blackberry and boysenberry flavors reach every nook and cranny of the palate and seem...

PRODUCER

Glaetzer

Glaetzer is one of Australia’s most admired wineries. It is located in Barossa Valley, in South Australia, and was established in the late 19th century when the Glaetzer family from Brandenburg, Germany, immigrated to the Barossa Valley and began growing grapes and making wine. Today the winery is known for its Shiraz and Shiraz blends. James Halliday, Australia’s most influential wine writer, has given Glaetzer five stars in his newest annual review of Australia’s wineries. Five stars his his highest rating. Halliday wrote: “If you like impressive wines, then search no further.”

REGION

Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.
