2013 Amon-Ra Shiraz Glaetzer



With a swathe of impressive scores proving its excellence, we are delighted to offer the 2013 Amon-Ra Shiraz from Ben Glaetzer, one of Australia’s finest producers. Commended for the “wonderful balance and elegance” that frames the power inherent to Barossa’s reds, the 2013 demonstrates just how impressive top wines from this region can be. This is a genuinely world-class effort, superbly made and, most importantly, still very well priced for its quality. Made from very low yielding old vines which produce a relatively tiny amount of outstanding quality fruit, Amon-Ra is dense and nuanced, with the structure to age beautifully. It is a great addition to any cellar.

From vines between 50-130yo, yield 2t/ha; open-fermented in 1 and 2-tonne pots, post-fermentation maceration, matured for 16 months in 100% new hogsheads, 95% French. Dense, deep inky crimson-purple; this is archetypal Amon-Ra, with black fruits, liquorice, oak and almost anything more you care to name; taking no prisoners, you are either in or out.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Amon Ra has youthfully toned-down notes of blackcurrants, blackberry preserves, plums and cracked pepper with nuances of licorice, dark chocolate, cedar and black earth. The palate has wonderful balance and elegance for its commendable concentration and fullness, with tons of muscular fruit and spice layers framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with great persistence.

Inky purple. Deep smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cassis, blueberry liqueur, Indian spices and sandalwood, with bright minerality adding lift and definition. Lush, creamy dark berry flavors are youthfully fresh, with a spine of acidity adding vivacity. Very deep but improbably lithe, finishing with emphatic sweetness and clarity and gently tannic persistence. Jul 2014, www.vinous.com
