Glaetzer 'The Wallace' Shiraz/Grenache 2010
Wine Advocate 91
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Wallace Shiraz Grenache has alluring black berry and black cherry notes, violets and baking spices with just a touch of pepper. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, the generous flesh is well balanced by a medium level of velvety tannins, finishing long. Though approachable now, it’s still very youthful and should keep to 2018+."

"Bright purple. Intense dark berry and cherry pit aromas are complemented by notes of vanilla, violet and cracked pepper. Juicy and focused, offering spicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suggestion of candied flowers. Dusty tannins add shape and grip to the long, spicy and gently sweet finish. Definitely give this wine a little air time. - Tanzer (July 2012)"

The Glaetzer philosophy focuses simply on the production of small-volume, super premium wines. Ben and his father Colin, hold a firm belief that wines are made in the vineyard; a combination of French notion terroir combined with Australian vineyard site knowledge. The wines are produced from vines grown in well-drained sandy clay loam over a solid limestone pan. This particular soil, widely recognized as the best for dry grown Shiraz, is found in the Ebenezer region in the northwestern part of the Barossa Valley. Yields are exceptionally low, with 1 to 1 1/2 tons per acre of Shiraz from some of the 60-85 year old vines being common, while the older vineyards produce as little as .25 tons per acre. Glaetzer has exceptional fruit, and thus opts for a minimalist approach.
