2003 Ben Glaetzer Amon-Ra Unfiltered Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia.

Ben Glaetzer Amon-Ra Unfiltered Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia.

As the King of all Gods, Amon-Ra is considered the most powerful figure in Egyptian mythology. The temple of Amon-Ra is recorded as the birthplace of commercial winemaking, having the first-ever large scale vineyard grown specifically to make wine for the citizens of the temple.
The 2003 vintage in the Barossa was dominated by a single rainfall event in late February. Over 90% of the Shiraz berries split as a result of water uptake. The following intense heat caused massive dehydration, limiting the degree of balanced ripening. The decision was made to leave our Amon-Ra fruit on the vine until late April in an attempt to allow flavour development.
This risk proved effective, the resultant wine shows a vibrant black/purple colour, with aromas of pepper, plum, and lifted animated fruit.
Matured for 14 months in 80% French oak (largely from small Burgundian coopers), and 20% American oak which has been French coopered.
A firm structure of ripe and supple tannins provide support to lashings of blackcurrant and nutmeg.
The tannin structure and sheer fruit weight of the wine will enable long-term cellaring.

The 2002 vintage in the Barossa was a spectacular year - wines of great fruit richness and intensity.
Dense purple colour, with aromas of raspberry, plum, and perfumed fruit.
A rich and powerful palate that is underpinned by fine-grained tannins which will ensure great longevity if cellared well.

Glaetzer Amon-Ra 2010 75cl Australia

95+ POINTS
Produced from 100% Shiraz, the 2010 Amon-Ra displays a deep purple-black color and aromas of cedar, baking spices, lavender, chocolate, and vanilla over a core of creme de cassis, black cherry pie and dried plums. Very full-bodied and densely packed with layered warm berry, earth and spice flavors, it has a solid backbone of medium to firm fine-grained tannins and crisp acid, finishing long with some hints of dried Provence herbs and black pepper coming through.
