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!

Amon-Ra Shiraz is an iconic wine that epitomises Ben Glaetzer’s passion to create wines that are full flavoured, multi layered and intense but still elegant, stylish and finely balanced. It is rich and mouthcoating yet with the balance and finesse. An earthy spice complements the brooding dark fruit flavours.

96+ points - James Suckling
"The 2019 Amon Ra Shiraz is 100% Shiraz and 100% from the 2019 vintage, as Ben Glaetzer felt it – unlike many previous vintages – didn’t need to be freshened with a small proportion of younger wine. From old vines in the Ebenezer district of the northern Barossa Valley, it offers classic notes of blackberries and spice, framed by hints of cedar and vanilla (it’s aged in 100% new oak hogsheads, mostly French). It’s full-bodied yet crisp, supple but tight and really long. Offering lovely dark fruit, hints of espresso and black olive, it finishes mouthwatering and firm. Give it some time in the cellar and drink it from 2025 – 2040."

96 points - James Halliday
"Gloss and polish of superb black fruits, framed in superfine tannins are Ben Glaetzer’s hallmarks. He continues to hone his talent at sustaining brightness and freshness, even in northern Barossa shiraz of monumental proportions. This represents one of his finest works yet. Bitter dark chocolate oak holds an enticing finish that ricochets with inky black fruits and licorice"
