Street Wines View:

75cl bottle.

Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and
Grenache in a modern way. The Shiraz brings backbone, flesh and body to the
wine with the Grenache adding a soft, vibrant juiciness.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark, vibrant red.
Aroma: Bright red fruits, masses of cherry and a hint of strawberry freshness.
Palate: Flavours of plum, cherry and cranberry. Soft, supple tannins from the
Grenache provide freshness and the Shiraz gives both weight and length.
Peak Drinking: A wine to enjoy in its youth that will also develop additional
complexity over 6 to 8 years of cellaring.

Critic Reviews:

91/100 The Wine Front.

91 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Glaetzer’s least-expensive offering is a terrific bargain. The 2018 Wallace Shiraz-Grenache is a 72-28 blend, offering hints of cola and plum on the nose, backed by brighter raspberry and strawberry notes. It’s medium to full-bodied and framed by silky, fine-grained tannins, with a long, mouthwatering finish that hints at mocha and wood spice.

92/100 James Suckling

This has attractive, ripe-raspberry aromas with a black-fruit core in a fresh, upbeat mode. The palate has a fleshy delivery of assertive blackberries, cassis and raspberries and delivers solid flavour and value.

93/100 Australian Wine Companion

A 72/28% blend from Glaetzer’s stomping ground of Ebenezer, the vines 50 and 100 yo. Grenache had minimal oak contact, the shiraz matured in used hogsheads for 16 months. It’s Glaetzer style, pure and simple: love it or leave it.
