GLAETZER BISHOP SHIRAZ

PRICE

£27.99

Australia >> Barossa Valley >> Shiraz

Description

The backbone of this full-bodied shiraz is the exceptional fruit from the dry-grown vines of the famed Ebenezer vineyards in the Barossa Valley. Aromas of liquorice and mocha intermingle with cassis and leather. Opulent fruit flavours on the palate are beautifully balanced by firm, velvety tannins from maturation in French and American oak. This multi-layered shiraz is drinking superbly now and it will reward cellaring for the next decade. The 2006 is the 8th release of Bishop (we deemed the quality of the 2000 and the 2003 vintages to be unsuitable for release under our label). The 05 and the 06 have benefited enormously from the input of fruit that once provided the backbone for the once revered Glaetzer Shiraz. The 2006 shows a little more tightness than the 2005 and 2004, the tannin being more pronounced in infancy but lending itself to be truly age worthy. The 2006 release will carry the new Bishop label allowing the wine to now sit proudly alongside Anaperenna and Amon Ra.
