Glaetzer "Bishop" Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark From 35-120 y.o. vines, open-fermented, post-ferment maceration, matured for 15 months in 40% new hogsheads, 90% French, 10% American. Deep crimson-purple; a complex wine, both in terms of its savoury flavours and its texture. Black fruits provide the core of the palate, with graphite, earth and tannins all on parade. It has absorbed and totally integrated the oak, which suits the wine to a T. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Outer quote mark Even better than the 2015, Glaetzer's 2016 Bishop Shiraz is very similar in style, with many of the same notes of charred meat, espresso, black olives and blackberries, but with a greater sense of freshness and vitality, even a touch of red raspberry fruit. It's full-bodied and supple, turning velvety on the long finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2018)
