Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and Grenache in a modern way. The Shiraz brings backbone, flesh and body to the wine with the Grenache adding a soft, vibrant juiciness.
Colour: Medium to deep garnet, a flash of purple on the rim.
Aroma: An enticing nose of dark plum, raspberry and lavender with hints of anise and ground spice.
Palate: Black fruits prevail with touches of pepper and blackcurrant. Firm, savoury yet rounded tannins balance with brightness and lift.
Peak Drinking: A wine to enjoy in its youth that will reward careful cellaring up to 5 years.
