GLAETZER BISHOP BAROSSA SHIRAZ

Ben Glaetzer as a winemaker has always been something of a risk taker, his wines do not come quietly, usually they push the boundaries of their genre and more often than not they have a character that you rarely find anywhere else.

This wine like a lot of his Shiraz flies very close to the boundaries of ripe and over ripe. It is a massive wine, dense, deep and dark. Personally I think it is a triumph but beware, its not for the faint of heart.

Inky deep in colour with lashings of blackberries and blueberries on the nose with a graphite complexity following through through to meaty notes once aired for a time.  The palate is big and glossy initially with really ripe, fine and well structured tannins linking the liqueurous blackberry style fruit with licorice notes and surprisingly fresh acids.  Big alcohols (15%) are not evident on the finish which is a mastery in itself and it lingers beautifully on the finish.  

A big, bold and beautiful wine which some may regard as over the top, but its this opulent style which makes the Glaetzer wines stand out and unashamedly speak of their Australian origins.

If you want to know what good Aussie Shiraz should taste like, try this.

Try with a medium rare grilled rib eye for a classic combo.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Bishop opens with black fruits and plums notes followed by nuances of dark chocolate, coffee and salami. Full-bodied and concentrated, it is big, solid and muscular with lively acidity, medium-firm, grainy tannins and a long, chocolaty finish. Drink it now to 2019+.
