Amon-Ra Shiraz

Amon Ra Shiraz

Amon Ra Shiraz by Ben Glaetzer from the Barossa Valley. An unfiltered heavyweight shiraz by a great winery.

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

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.

In Egyptian mythology, Amon Ra is considered to be the king of all gods. The temple of Amon Ra was believed to be the first temple to ever plant a monoculture vineyard to produce wine for the citizens of the temple.

The eye on front of the label is the all seeing eye of Horus or wedjat (“whole one”) – a powerful Egyptian symbol of protection. It is represented as a figure with six parts, corresponding to what Egyptians regarded as the six senses; touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell and thought.

Ben Glaetzer created Amon Ra Shiraz to appeal to all these six senses.

The 2013 Amon Ra Shiraz displays a very deep purple-black color and floral notes of violets and wilted rose petals over mulberries, blueberries, star anise, mocha, fenugreek, cumin seeds, cloves and tree bark plus some toasty oak. Full-bodied and rich yet not overly so, it has refreshingly crisp acid and firm grainy tannins texturing the long spicy finish.

A great wine well worth it’s iconic status.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz – Langmeil’s original vineyard, the Freedom, was planted in 1843 and survives to this day. Planted by the Lutheran forebears who were escaping religious persecution and war in Prussia, just seven years after the state of South Australia was colonised. They came to their new homeland, from Persecution to Freedom, to worship and find peace in our beloved Barossa. The Freedom 1843 is testament to the best of the Barossa, and the determination and independent vision of the Bitter and Lindner families at Langmeil, who have farmed in the district for five generations.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz has the following characteristics.

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes, mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spices.
Palate: Rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spices and lovely, silky tannins. A full-bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and allspice and in combination, flow through to the lengthy, brambly fruit finish.

Freedom is the name of a remarkable patch of vines that have stood the test of time. Today, this vineyard underpins Langmeil’s and the Lindner family’s dedication to old vine preservation and winemaking.
Firmly planted at the heart of the historic winery site, this one-acre patch of gnarly and proud, dry-grown vines is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving shiraz vineyard planted in 1843.
Upon discovering this hidden treasure amongst the once derelict property, the vines were revived and dedicated to pioneer Christian Auricht who had fled his native Prussia for freedom from religious persecution. It was Auricht who settled the original Langmeil trading village in 1842, putting down his own roots in the Barossa soil and creating a home for his family, for generations to come. It is here that Auricht planted the Freedom vineyard as part of his mixed farm.
Predominantly planted on alluvial loam and red clay over limestone and ironstone, each vine’s roots penetrate deeply into the layers of quarry sand and gravel in the underlying water table of Barossa’s North Para River. In optimum vintages, it produces a low yielding crop of just two tonnes per acre.
From this vineyard Langmeil crafts a wine that sits at its pinnacle of winemaking, The Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz.

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – A Cabernet that is simply oozing class. Richly layered and densely packed fruit fills the palate with an opulent and powerful intensity. Flavours of blackcurrant and mulberry with a light lift of leafy black olive. This is classic Margaret River Cabernet with power, poise and stylish expression.

Gourmet Traveller 96 points!
“This outstanding cabernet has great colour and a multiplicity of black fruits in the bouqet with a faint tinge of dried herb and perfectly dovetailed oak. Rich, full-bodied, lush blackberry fruit takes centre stage”
Gourmet Traveller, 2014

“The full bodied palate is generous and crammed full of ripe forest fruits, cassis, and dark chocolate characters. Powerful, yet refined in structure, the fleshy fruits are complimented with an ample amount of supple tannins; all culminating together to provide a dense, persistent berry fruit finish.”

Mount Eddlestone Shiraz

Mount Eddlestone Shiraz

Mount Eddlestone Shiraz 2014, a truly great wine from the phenomenal Henschke winery.

The ancient 500 million year old soils on this vineyard are deep red-brown clay-loam to clay resulting in low yields from the 100 year old vines. This has become known as one of Australia’s greatest shiraz wines. Decanting is recommended before serving.

Deep crimson with deep purple hues. Pure and complex, with lifted aromatics of violets, dark plums, fresh blackberries and blueberries, and the unmistakable Mount Edelstone signature aromas of crushed sage and cracked black pepper. The palate shows incredible purity and balance, with rich plum and blackberry fruit flavours, rosehip florals and savoury spice notes, finishing long with lingering plum skin and sage, and layers of fine, silky tannins.

The Mount Edelstone vineyard, situated in the Eden Valley, was planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas, who founded South Australia. Unusual for its time, it was planted solely to shiraz. The ancient 500 million-year-old soils on the vineyard are deep red-brown clay-loam to clay, resulting in low yields from over 100 year-old dry-grown, ungrafted centenarian vines. First bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952, it became recognised as one of Australia’s greatest shiraz wines.

100% 102 year-old single-vineyard shiraz grapes grown organically and biodynamically in the Eden Valley wine region.

Matured in 92% French and 8% American (28% new, 72% seasoned) hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling

Pair with Braised Duck with Red Molé

Henschke Mount Eddlestone Shiraz, a fantastic aussie wine, worth every word of praise written about it, from a classic Aussie family vineyard.

…it’s sublime: rich, saturated blood plum fruit sprinkled with exotic, fragrant woody spices and swaddled in firm but supple tannin.

Mollydooker Enchanted Path

Mollydooker Enchanted Path

Mollydooker Enchanted Path displays an inky deep colour with dense hues. The journey begins with fragrant bright red fruit on the nose, followed by deeper tones of blackberry and plum jam on the palate. Well guided by precise tannins, these flavours will fully entertain your senses, giving the wine phenomenal length.

Full information on the winery may be found at https://www.mollydookerwines.com/

The vineyards are situated on the magical Seaview Ridge, which with its ancient soils and Mediterranean climate, is home to some of the most iconic Australian wines. We have three separate vineyards – Long Gully Road, Coppermine Road and the Home Blocks, giving us a total of 114 acres of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. All of our grapes are grown sustainably.

For the best results with your wine try the Mollydooker shake.

From a new bottle of Mollydooker, pour some wine out into a glass and set it aside. Do the Mollydooker Shake on the rest of the wine in the bottle, and pour some into another glass. Then taste them side by side. The difference will amaze you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCGFz3nnakE

The winemaker says “Pre-shaken the wines are intense, concentrated and still magnificent. However, after the shake the wine becomes more approachable, the aromatics are lifted and the fruit is smoother on the palate. An overall more enjoyable and total Mollydooker experience!”

Don’t worry, the first glass you poured isn’t wasted. After a short time, it loses nitrogen, so you can enjoy it soon after. We call it pourer’s perks!

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon 

This wine carries the name of Stephen’s father, Cyril Henschke (1924-1979), as a tribute to one of Australia’s outstanding winemaking pioneers, renowned for old-vine single-vineyard and quality varietal table wines. Cyril planted cabernet sauvignon at Henschke’s Eden Valley vineyard in the 1960s.

Description

Deep crimson with red hues. Concentrated and complex aromas of cassis, black and red currants, blackberry leaf and violets with underlying savoury nuances of crushed dried herbs, cigar box, beefstock and anise spice, all supported by dark cedary French oak. A flood of rich blackberry and bright red currants greet the palate, which is precisely defined by purity of acidity, an elegant structure and layers of long, silky fine-grained tannins that provide great persistence.

This is one of Australia’s greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters)…It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own.
