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. Overt 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. Flavors of blackcurrant, blueberry and crushed and spice provide depth and complexity. Very approachable in it’s youth and will develop great complexity as it ages.
