Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz 2016
The Bishop will be known for its pronounced purity and intensity of fruit on release. There are rich, ripe, dark berry fruits with star anise on the palate. On the nose, aromas of liquorice and mocha intermingle with cassis and leather. Firm, velvety tannins from maturation in French and American oak beautifully balance opulent flavours on the palate.
A few of the shiraz parcels used for Anaperenna in previous vintages have been used in the Bishop cuvee. . This means that fruit from some of our oldest shiraz vines was used, allowing us to maintain the Bishop structure and intensity. Our old vines handled the drought better than the younger vines and their fruit was softer, rounder and more generous - the desired style for Bishop Shiraz.
