The Glaetzer family has been making wine for a LONG time by Australia standards...since 1888! It’s only in the last few decades that they re-dedicated themselves to making ultra-premium wines. And make no mistake, these are intense, jam-packed wines that overdeliver in a huge way (especially today, of course...normally $30).

Ben Glaetzer is the current driving force behind these wines. With a degree from Adelaide University, he takes on a minimal intervention approach to create classic Barossan wine. All fruit for Glaetzer Wines is taken from a small sub-district of the Northern Barossa Valley, called Ebenezer, which produces exceptional fruit from very old vines. The softness and elegance of Ebenezer fruit, coupled with Ben Glaetzer's winemaking style, results in generous wines with great depth of flavor that are also elegant, multilayered and finely balanced.

Thrilling black/blue fruits, dark mocha notes, mint and licorice, savory finish, and rich, mouthfilling texture. Wow! We have about 30 cases today at this superb price... Don’t miss!

About the Producer

The Glaetzer family has been part of the Barossa Valley and its viticulture history since 1888. After 30 years of winemaking, Colin Glaetzer established the family winery to create limited quantities of super premium Barossa Valley red wines. Today Colin's son Ben makes unique and elegant wines which are regarded as classics and unmistakably Barossan. Ben is the driving force behind these wines, with a degree from Adelaide University, he takes on a minimal intervention approach to create classic Barossan wine. All fruit for Glaetzer Wines is taken from a small sub district of the Northern Barossa Valley called Ebenezer which produces exceptional fruit from very old vines.

93 James Halliday -
A 72/28% blend from Glaetzer’s stomping ground of Ebenezer, the vines 50 and 100yo. Grenache had minimal oak contact, the shiraz matured in used hogsheads for 16 months. It’s Glaetzer style, pure and simple: love it or leave it.
92 James Suckling -
This has attractive, ripe-raspberry aromas with a black-fruit core in a fresh, upbeat mode. The palate has a fleshy delivery of assertive blackberries, cassis and raspberries and delivers solid flavor and value. Drink now. Screw cap.
91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Glaetzer's least-expensive offering is a terrific bargain. The 2018 Wallace Shiraz-Grenache is a 72-28 blend, offering hints of cola and plum on the nose, backed by brighter raspberry and strawberry notes. It's medium to full-bodied and framed by silky, fine-grained tannins, with a long, mouthwatering finish that hints at mocha and wood spice. Drink this beauty over the next 6-7 years.
