Expert Reviews

'IN A BRAVE NEW TASTING, AUSTRALIA'S FINEST WINES WERE SERVED BLIND TO THE BRITISH SCEPTICS, WITH UNEXPECTED RESULTS'

"….Never before, even in Australia, has there been such an opportunity to judge more than 100 of Australia's best wines blind….In a way, this was a remarkably brave exercise on the part of the Australians.

Nothing is more guaranteed to highlight the shortcomings of any wine, no matter how highly regarded, than to serve it blind, without the cocoon of its label and status, alongside dozens of its peers….And as in all flights, I was deliberately looking for wines that could only be gloriously, rip-roaringly Australian wines, rather than copies of European wine archetypes. What was fascinating was the variation in regional styles, from rich, choclately Barossa Shiraz such as Glaetzer's succulent 1998…"

The 1998 Glaetzer Shiraz was one of 113 Australian wines assembled for the tasting by Andrew Caillard from respected auction house, Langton's. The blind tasting was designed to show off Australian fine wine to UK wine industry heavyweights. Robinson reported on the major tasting event in her widely-read wine column in the UK Financial Times.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

The fruit for the Glaetzer Shiraz is sourced from the Ebenezer District in the northwest Barossa Valley.

The vines are over 80 years old and extremely low yielding, crops rarely exceeding 1 tonne per acre. Picked at optimum ripeness the grapes were fermented in open top vats before completing fermentation in American oak puncheons (500L barrels). 18 months maturation in oak has allowed superb flavour integration prior to blending and bottling.

The wine has immense flavour with the characteristic Barossa Valley richness, softness and elegance. To allow the wine to reach full potential extended cellaring is recommended.

Winery Profile

The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family left Germany on board the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer “Habsburg” and took seven weeks to reach their final destination of Port Adelaide. From here they settled in a country town called Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley where they started their new life in Australia. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley.Over a century later, winemaking patriarch Colin Glaetzer established Glaetzer Wines, a boutique family owned winery producing premium Barossa Valley wines. Today Colin’s son Ben carries on the wine making traditions at Glaetzer Wines. Indeed it was the birth of Glaetzer Wines that signalled a new era for Colin’s family which boasts more than its fair share of winemakers.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
