Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Overt dark cherry, cracked pepper and raspberry notes are lifted and fragrant on the nose. There is a dark fruit lushness to the palate which is counterbalanced by a spicy suppleness and focus. Flavours of blackcurrant, blueberry and crushed spice provide depth and complexity. Very approachable in it’s youth and will develop great complexity as it ages.
Production Notes
Ebenezer, Barossa Valley: After a superb 2012 vintage with near perfect growing conditions, the 2013 vintage has once again provided excellent quality fruit but under very different circumstances. Early growing season frost reduced viable bud numbers significantly with a resultant lowering of crop levels for the year. Given the low fruit level, the 2013 vintage was one of the driest and quickest vintages I can remember involving a very dry late winter and spring leading into a warm and dry summer. Our Barossa harvest was completed by late March as distinct from our usual late April completion. Cool and dry Ebenezer nights in late February and early March helped to intensify flavours and contributed positively to the brightness of fruit and complexity of structure. The wines from 2013 are intense yet focussed with extremely well balanced weight and firm and savoury tannin.
Winemaker Notes
Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and Grenache in a thoroughly modern way. The Shiraz component gives the wine backbone, flesh and body with the Grenache adding a soft, vibrant juiciness.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with barbecued ribs, lamb cutlets.
