Estate: Glaetzer Wines

Region: Barossa Valley, Barossa, South Australia, Australia

Tasting Note:July 29, 2016

Second Australian Shiraz of the night. Deep and dark ruby red. Classic Aussie nose with a ton of caramel, sweet bread, molasses, jammy and an interesting undertone of mint. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) with black cherries, caramel and even more complex dark fruits as it opens up. Medium body and long finish. Delicious Aussie Shiraz.

100% Shiraz from the Northern Ebenezar region of Barossa Valley. Vines are between 100 and 110 years old. Aged for 14 months in 100% new oak, of which 20% is American and 80% French.
