GBPS201910 UCAU
Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz is a vibrant purple coloured wine which took its fruit from 35-yr-old and 120-yr-old vines. This robust wine opens with fragrance of cloves and violets on the nose, along with hints of mulberry and dark chocolate. The purity of dark fruits and plums lingers on the palate with firm and savoury tannins. The wine shows impressive depth and harmony of flavours at the finish. This diligently crafted red wine develops complexity over careful cellaring. For a great taste, pair this elegant Barossa Valley Shiraz with beef or venison dishes.

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is about an hour and a half drive to the North of Adelaide, in South Australia and is the oldest wine region in the country, founded by German settlers. The region can be credited with putting Australian wine on the world wine map, thanks to Shiraz, which thrives in the warm climate (though Hunter Valley Semillon also contributed.)

For many years traditionalist wine makers thought the grape variety was best suited to the cooler climates of the Rhone Valley and that the variety would cook in the warmth of the Australian sun. Although South Australian Shiraz is a bigger, beefier wine than its southern French counterpart Syrah, no one can deny the region's propensity to produce world-class wines.

Not only Shiraz is cultivated in Barossa Valley, with other red varieties such as Grenache, Mourvedre (Mataro) and to a lesser extent Cabernet Sauvignon. The white varieties that thrive best seem to be Semillon, Chardonnay and Rhone varietals like viognier, Marsanne and Roussane.

The Valley has many subregions which all have unique terroirs. Seppeltsfield, Marananga, Greenock are to name but a few. With a huge number of wineries in such a small area and a host of accommodation, the region is very popular for wine tourism. In the words of Master of Wine Jancis Robinson, the Barossa Valley became "Australia's quintessential wine region."

About the brand Glaetzer

The Glaetzer family is about as close to Barossa Valley winemaking nobility as you can get – in fact, both Colin Glaetzer and his son Ben are Barons of the Barossa. Generation after generation of Glaetzers have coaxed wine from the land since their arrival from Germany in 1888. Settling in Nuriootpa, records show the Glaetzer family were among the first viticulturalists in the Barossa and Clare Valleys, beginning a long tradition of winemaking that runs strongly through the family.

Colin Glaetzer began his career at Barossa Valley Estate in 1985 where he was behind the creation of E & E Black Pepper Shiraz and the Ebenezer portfolio of wines. His passion for winemaking was passed on to his three sons and in 1995 the family formed Glaetzer Wines, collecting a swag of awards on the way including 5 stars in the James Halliday 2011, 2012 and 2013 Wine Companions. Under Ben Glaetzer, the focus is on small batch super-premium wines that communicate the classic elegance and unmistakable Barossa characters.
