Glaetzer Wines

Penumbra by Colin Glaetzer Old Vine Shiraz

Deep rich in colour with sweet ripe fruit and hints of oak on the nose. The palate has all the depth and structure of a premium Barossa Shiraz with good concentration of flavour and overall balance. The word penumbra means a partial shadow, such as an eclipse, between regions of complete light and shadow. The notion of light and shade forming interesting patterns and effects can be clearly likened to the craft of winemaking, where the many nuances involved in making a fine wine are often not easily defined as black and white, but in skilfully utilising the grey areas. The Glaetzer family makes unique and elegant wines that are regarded as classics and are unmistakably from the Barossa Valley. This wine from vines 35-70 years old exhibits great intensity of colour and flavour with a nose of dark fruits, chocolate and spice. Very soft and elegant on the palate, typical of the great Shiraz wines of the Barossa. While drinking beautifully now, this wine will reward with medium term cellaring. With a family history in the Barossa Valley dating back to 1888, Glaetzer Wines was established by Colin Glaetzer after 30 years of winemaking experience. Son Ben worked in the Hunter Valley and as a Flying Winemaker in many of the worlds wine regions before returning to Glaetzer Wines and assuming the winemaking role. The wines are made with great skill and abundant personality.
