Glaetzer Eye of Ra Shiraz 2016
By legendary winemaker Ben Glaetzer, the Eye of Ra is his hero wine, the latest considered edition to a prestigious range.
The Eye of Ra was the powerful feminine counterpart to the sun god Ra in Egyptian mythology and was personified by a number of Egyptian goddesses. They also represented the polarity of extreme force of the sun’s heat countered by the sun’s nurturing gaze. Wine maker Ben Glaezter similarly produced the Eye of Ra Shiraz featuring excellent power and depth balanced by restraint and elegance leading to an amazing evolution in the bottle and glass.
This wine has aromas of spiced plum, wild herbs, and richness of blackberry and cedar scents. Displaying volume and depth at all levels, the nature of the wine is enhanced by time in glass. A generous and rich palate with elegant structure. Flavours of liquorice, dark plums, and dried spice finishing with juicy acidity and an amazingly long, bright and fresh finish.
To me, The Eye of Ra 2016 Shiraz represents the very best that the famed Ebenezer district in the Barossa Valley has to offer from a truly extraordinary 2016 vintage. It is the first wine I have released that I have deemed to be beyond exceptional. -Ben Glaezter, Wine Maker
