“The 2004 Bishop (100% Shiraz aged 14 months in both hogsheads and small barrels) is fashioned from some of Ben Glaetzer’s “younger” vines (only 40-80 years old). A spicy, peppery, earthy, cherry, blackberry, and licorice-scented bouquet is turbo-charged, soaring from the glass. This full-bodied, savory, heady, rich wine boasts impressive balance, concentration, and overall mouthfeel. One of the stars in the Epicurean portfolio, the young Ben Glaetzer is establishing a reputation for high quality in South Australia, not only for the wines from his home winery, but also for his brilliant efforts under the Amon Ra and Mitolo labels. These are small volume, artisinal efforts that capture the pure essence of old vine Barossa Shiraz and Grenache. This 2004 was tasted just prior to bottling.” 94 pts WA
