Ben Glaetzer, 'Amon Ra' Shiraz, 2016, Barossa Valley, Australia

£52.00

Seamless, rich and full-bodied with black plum flavours intermingling with dried spice and finely balanced supple tannin. Impressive yet restrained.

Amon-Ra Shiraz is an iconic wine that epitomises Ben Glaetzer’s passion to create wines that are full flavoured, multi layered and intense but still elegant, stylish and finely balanced. Exceptional old vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley.

A wine that will develop beautifully with long term cellaring over decades
