Glaetzer Dixon Mon Pere Shiraz 2013


"The Jimmy Watson wasn’t a fluke. This is quite exquisite... . 400 dozen produced. Expect them to fly." Campbell Mattinson

"...Cool climate. In the best sense of the words. This is a beautiful wine. Fluid, riven with pepper-spice, satiny and long. The Jimmy Watson wasn’t a fluke. This is quite exquisite. Meat, cloves, liquorice, roasted nuts and black cherries. Woodsmoke drifting through. Herbage as an afterthought, but an important one. Water-based flavours but with a gentle slink of alcohol. Multi-media. 400 dozen produced. Expect them to fly. Rated : 96 Points.  Alcohol: 13.7%/Drink : 2015 - 2026+.  Campbell Mattinson.  winefront.com.au

The Glaetzer family has been making wines in the Barossa Valley dating back to the 1880s, but Nick Glaetzer has taken a very different road, spending the past decade honing his craft making wines in chilly Tasmania. He's picked up a Jimmy Watson Trophy and a Young Winemaker of the Year award along the way and is soon to open an urban winery and cellar door in Hobart. This new-release shiraz from a fine vintage is a blend of fruit from the Coal, Derwent and Tamar valleys; a north-south blend that is simultaneously intense and finely crafted. It's a wine that is all about cool-climate fruit quality with ripe berry, pepper and spice characters to the fore. This is beautiful right now, sweet/savoury and soft, but I'd put a couple of bottles away for a few years. $50. Winsor Dobbin
