The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany, bringing with them a passion for winemaking. Over a century later, winemaking patriarch Colin Glaetzer established Glaetzer Wines. From the warm, northern district of Ebenezer in the Barossa Valley, Shiraz vines up to 130-years-old produce concentrated grapes with depth of flavor and complexity. Ben Glaetzer, son of Colin, heads up the winemaking team today. He is committed to expressing the purity of fruit; using minimal intervention techniques, Ben produces ultra-premium wines that are unmistakably Barossan, yet markedly elegant.Learn More
2015 "Wallace" Shiraz-Grenache, Barossa Valley
Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and Grenache in a thoroughly modern way. The Shiraz component gives the wine backbone, flesh and body with the Grenache adding a soft, vibrant
juiciness. Very approachable in its youth it will develop great complexity as it ages.

2015 "Bishop" Shiraz, Barossa Valley
A blend of fruit from 35 year-old vines & 120 year-old wines is the key to the Bishop cuvée. The fruit from younger vines is fresh & vibrant, whilst Shiraz from the oldest block in the Ebenezer vineyard gives structure which enhances the palate profile.

2015 "Anaperenna" Shiraz-Cabernet, Barosssa Valley
The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties; Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Almost opaque in colour, the wine has masses of blackcurrent fruit on the nose with aromas of liquorice and mixed spice. The palate is full-bodied yet has great refinement and focus.

2015 "Amon-Ra" Shiraz, Barossa Valley
The key to Amon-Ra Shiraz is balancing the extraction, rather than maximizing it. The fruit has such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them. The astounding purity of expression and multilayered structure will allow this wine to mature with elegance for decades to come.
