Der Ben Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz Barossa Valley zeigt Blaubeere und Zedernholz im Bukett. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich der Ben Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz Barossa Valley mit einer wunderbar-fruchtige Aromenkonzentration, weich und hochelegant, sanfte Tannine im Abgang. Der Ben Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz Barossa Valley verkörpert das Paradebeispiel eine mächtigen australischen Shiraz. 60 Jahre alte Rebstöcke mit einer enormen Aromenkonzentration ergeben diesen hoch eleganten, sehr weichen und schon in jungen Jahren zugänglichen Ausnahmewein.
"All Shiraz, all from the Ebenezer section of the northern Barossa, the 2018 Bishop Shiraz is a super value in the context of Barossa, and Australian Shiraz in general. Matured in only 5% new oak hogsheads, it delivers bountiful cherry and raspberry fruit, accented by hints of mocha and cola. It's medium to full-bodied, plump and juicy, fruity and lush, but reined in by firm, savory tannins on the long, mouthwatering finish. It should drink well for up to a decade.“ Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
