Cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Glaetzer family emigrated to Barossa from Brandenberg in Germany in 1888, becoming one of the first families to start making wine in the valley. Colin Glaetzer decided to found his own family winery in 1995 after working for other local producers including Barossa Valley Estate. Before long his son Ben followed in his footsteps and in 2004 he was awarded Qantas Young Winemaker of the Year aged just 26.

The Glaetzer philosophy centres around small batch production of exceptional Barossa wines made from both classic local varieties as well as newer grapes from Italy and other European countries. Wallace is the Glaetzer interpretation of a traditional GSM or Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre blend. The fruit is sourced from vineyards in the cooler Ebenezer sub-region in the northernmost part of the Barossa Valley which are planted with 50-80 year old Syrah and 50-100 year old Grenache.

Thanks to the intensity and complexity of the old vine Grenache fruit, this component of the blend does not need to spend long in oak. In contrast, the Syrah is aged in used oak barrels for 16 months before the blending and bottling takes place. This helps to create an incredibly rich and concentrated red with ample dark berry, plum, dried fruit and spiced notes. From the Shiraz there is a generous full body and very long spicy finish while the Grenache adds a well-rounded, smooth texture and ripe tannins.
