Ben Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Unfiltered Shiraz is created from 100% dry grown Barossa Valley Shiraz from vines that are 50-130 year old and aged for 14 months in new French (95%) and American (5%) oak barrels. The viticulture used is standard single wire, with permanent arm rod and spur. The result is a deep purple colored, rich, full-bodied wine with aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and spicy chocolate on the nose. The palate is viscous with firm tannins offering complex aromas of black fruit, cassis, clove, coffee and oak. Subtle notes of sandalwood lingers through the long, pleasing finish.
