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.
Over 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.
69% Shiraz, 31% Grenache.
