A monumental wine, the 2005 Glaetzer Shiraz Amon-Ra Barossa Valley is from dry-grown 100-110 year-old Shiraz vines and spends 14 months in 100% new oak, of which 20% is American and 80% French (70% hogsheads & 30% barrique.) The wine offers fresh, clean aromatics of peppered blackberry and raspberry fruit, bramble, licorice and cedar. A touch of chocolate creeps in with air. On the palate it’s full bodied with a rich, broad texture that remains light and fresh, perfect balance, fresh acids and a blockbuster finish where the wine shows savory, edgy tannin.
Deep garnet in color, the 2005 Amon-Ra displays aromas of pure black currant cordial, dark chocolate, violets and toast with a hint of raw meat and touch of Indian spices. Full-bodied with a taut and muscular frame defined by firm grainy tannins, it is still very youthful and offers fresh, crisp acid that retains nice vibrancy through the long finish. (LPB)
From a single vineyard in the Ebenezer region, this is simply stupendous stuff. It is a bit Port-like in its rich layers of blackberry fruit, but it also displays great freshness and drive, giving it a juicy, fresh fruit character that’s accented even more by dustings of pepper and dried spices. A beautiful marriage of drinkability and ageability. (JC)
Smooth, round and spicy, with star anise and soy sauce overtones to the rich cherry and toast flavors, lingering on the generous finish. Has depth and impressive detail. (HS)
