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.
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.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2021 Wallace Shiraz Grenache pours a vibrant, refulgent fuchsia in the glass. The Grenache lends it all the raspberry
jubes and spice, while the Shiraz gives it plumpness and presence. Really delicious, glossy, silky fruit is supported by a river
of the same flowing tannins. Epic value for money. This is fresher, finer and more alive than the 2020 offering. Lovely

A blend of northern Barossa shiraz/grenache. Deep crimson in hue with vibrant aromas of frangipani-flecked dark plum,
blackberry and boysenberry fruits underscored with baking spices, rose petals, roasting meats, cola, ginger spice and earth.
Bright acidity, a plume of red cherry and wild strawberry join the party on the palate, with fine sandy tannin and black tea and
pure dark and red berry fruits on the exit. Dave Brookes, James Halliday Wine Companion, July 2023,
You are getting a mighty lot of old vine fruit in this excellent Shiraz Grenache blend from the excellent 2021 vintage. In fact the
Shiraz is off 80-year old vines and the Grenache from a range of 50 to 100-year-old vines. It’s a medium to full bodied wine from
the Barossa displaying beautifully spicy red fruit throughout. The Shiraz brings the power and presence while the vibrancy of the
Grenache is obvious. It’s a remarkably detailed and expressive wine with oak playing a more subdued role.
