Glaetzer Bishop is a true expression of Barossa Shiraz made by leading winemaker Ben Glaetzer from 35-120 year old vines. Aromas of dark cherries, blackcurrant and spice. Full in the mouth with backberry and plum flavours and ripe tannins.
Bishop is the family name of Colin’s wife’ Judith. Fittingly the sign of Venus, a symbol which has come to represent women and feminine energy, is the centrepiece of the Bishop label.
In mythology, the symbol meant the Roman goddess Venus or her Greek equivalent Aphrodite. But the sign has also been linked back to ancient Egypt – a nod to Bishop’s link to Amon-Ra and Anaperenna.
The irrepressible Ben Glaetzer is the driving force behind Glaetzer Wines. Ben graduated in winemaking from Adelaide University in South Australia after working at Barossa Valley Estate during school and university holidays.
After travelling extensively throughout many of the worlds wine regions, Ben returned to the Barossa and joined the family company. Ben’s ability to blend traditional winemaking techniques with a modern flair is reflected in the style of wines under the Glaetzer label. He makes unique, elegant wines with minimal intervention, which are regarded as classics and unmistakably Barossan.
Along with the numerous trophies and awards for his wines, Ben’s winemaking honours include:
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)
“Baron of the Barossa” for his contribution to the cultural fabric of the Barossa Valley.
