Wallace by Ben Glaetzer Shiraz Grenache 2019

No price rise in 4 years. Ben’s accountant may need to have a word.

Wallace, Shiraz/Grenache, Barossa Valley, 2019

Power and presence: there’s a lot going on for the “entry” level wine of the range. Glass staining legs. Grenache providing a deep floral lift under tarry licorice, thick plum flesh, strawberry highlights, bitter black olives and sweet vanilla oak nuances. Flowing and full front to mid, yet retains lift and focus through the back palate. Firm, fine grain drying tannins carry things along well. Powerhouse Barossa at a keen price? Look no further.

RRP: $22.99
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
