The Glaetzer family has been involved in growing or making wine in the Barossa Valley since the 1800’s and in 1995, Colin Glaetzer, started the Glaetzer label. The family focus on shiraz in its most hedonistic Barossan expression. The Bishop is always a show stopper both in shelf appeal and in the glass. It is a big, bolder than bold, juicy red. The lashings of liquorice, earth, and chocolate wrap firmly around the black fruited heart.
This is an opulent red in weight and charm with its finish is of warm caramel spice. It is a big red lover’s wine that should mellow with age, although I have not yet had that pleasure.
