Glaetzer Wallace Shiraz Grenache 2016
Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of shiraz and grenache in a thoroughly modern way. Rich, peppery old-vine shiraz dominates and adds weight, texture and fleshy richness to the palate. Grenache provides complex tannins and fresh acidity to the mix, with luscious red cherry and hints of aromatic spices and anise. The grenache fruit was powerful and robust, allowing it to play a strong role in the final blend. The percentage of grenache has dropped to 20% for this release to allow for this intensity. Wallace combines the best of the two varieties to create a spicy, savoury, food friendly wine.
