    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 75% Shiraz and 25% Grenache.

    Glaetzer Wallace is a wine greater than the sum of its parts - a fusion of Shiraz and Grenache, which is a traditional blend in the Barossa Valley. Ripe, peppery old-vine Shiraz dominates and adds weight, texture and fleshy richness to the palate. The Grenache adds sweet cherry, toffee and earthy characters. Parcels of premium fruit are picked at full ripeness for vibrant color, with an abundance of juicy, berry flavours and spice. The wine shows the elegance and finesse which underpins the Glaetzer style. Our Grenache clone is light in color, almost Rose like, yet provides a huge level of tannin extraction and therefore lends itself to blend with Shiraz. The Grenache provides mid-palate richness and a strawberry/cherry like characteristic on the palate and the Shiraz provides tightness and focus. In 2007 Grenache proved to be a stand-out consistent variety and has allowed us to maintain the continuity of the Wallace style.

    "The 2007 Wallace is a blend of 75% Shiraz and 25% Grenache aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Deep crimson-colored, it reveals a fragrant bouquet of cedar, scorched earth, pencil lead, black cherry, and blueberry. On the palate it has an elegant personality with racy, slightly tart, fruit flavors, good concentration, and a silky finish. Drink this excellent value through 2017." 90 Points

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright and lively, with a fresh feel to the red cherry, raspberry and spice aromas and flavors, lingering expressively against refined tannins. Drink now through 2012.
