Glaetzer's 2012 'Bishop' Shiraz was produced from the small sub-region of the northern Barossa Valley, called Ebenezer. The vines are grown in well-drained sandy clay loam over a solid limestone pan - a particular soil type that is especially well-suited to growing Shiraz.
Glaetzer's 2012 'Bishop' Shiraz is a blend of fruit from 35 year-old vines and 130 year-old vines, which results in a nice balance of complexity, texture and flavors. The young vines provide fresh and vibrant fruit, while the Shiraz from the older blocks give structure and enhance the palate profile.
Stephen Tanzer says the 2012 'Bishop' has "Highly fragrant aromas of candied cassis, blueberry and licorice, with pungent notes of vanilla bean, violet and mocha. Lush, intensely flavored and broad, offering deep black and blue fruit and vanilla qualities and an exotic floral nuance.
