98 Points The Wine Advocate

"Certainly one of the best vintages of young Amon Ra I’ve ever tasted, the 2018 Amon Ra Shiraz is a stupendous effort. From old vines in the Ebenezer section of the northern Barossa, it starts off with a whirlwind of mocha, blackberry and dried spices, then actually gets more red-fruited as it sits in the glass. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated without being jammy or overdone, the wine finishes long and savory, framed by dusty tannins and mouthwatering black olives. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer compares 2018 to 2004 (which continues to drink well). Expect the 2018 to drink well young, but easily age through 2035, perhaps longer." 

Ben Glaetzer has been the Vineking’s favourite Barossa winemaker since we discovered them in 2005. The list of awards he has won is striking: Qantas Young Winemaker of the Year, Robert M. Parker Jnr Wine Personality of the Year, New World Winemaker of the Year in Behind the Label (UK) and he is known as the "Baron of the Barossa" for his contribution to the cultural fabric of the Barossa Valley.

His style captures the essence of Barossa but has a terrific sense of balance too and he REALLY knows what he's doing.  His wine speak for themselves – up and down the range, these are superb Barossa wines we are delighted to be offering at such a good rate!
