Amon-Ra by Ben Glaetzer 2020

The Eye of Horus stares out from the label of this wine and is known as the Egyptian symbol of “protection, royal power and good health.” From vines between 50 to 130 years old in the Ebenezer region of the Barossa. 16 months in 100% new oak (95% French and 5% American). Bottled unfiltered and under cork. Serious packaging for a serious wine.

Amon-Ra, Shiraz, Barossa Valley, 2020


Opulent and full: With soft meaty char, blackberry and rich chocolate over umami laden soy, flannelette, easy clove and peppery spice. Full bodied, powerful palate awash with that dark Ebenezer fruit and framed well by structured and neatly integrated tannin. Long, long finish. One for the hedonists now or 10 years time.

RRP: $100
Alc: 15%
Rating: 18.5/20 (94/100)
