Glaetzer Amon-Ra 2012


SKU 9322246009021


Darkly concentrated and rich yet maintaining poise and freshness, the 2012 Amon-Ra displays masses of dark fruit and spice onthenose and an alluring depth and structure on the palate. Notes of black liquorice, blackcurrant an dark cherry lead into firm, finely grained tannin and impressive length. A wine destined to impress and reward with long term cellaring.

Wine AdvocateVery deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Amon Ra reveals intense notes of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry compote and licorice with nuances of cloves, allspice, chocolate box and salami as well as a whiff of espresso. The 100% Shiraz palate offers a beast of a wine that is densely packed with black fruit and baking spice flavors and is supported with firm, grainy tannins and crisp acid through to a finish with excellent persistence. Drink it 2015 to 2025+.

Wine SpectatorSupple and expressive, this is layered with clove- and nutmeg-accented cherry and floral flavors, coming together seamlessly on the sleek finish. Offers integrity and depth. Best from 2015 through 2020.
