Amon-Ra is the king of all gods. The temple of Amon-Ra was the first in history to contain a monoculture vineyard. Rameses III lists over five hundred vineyards belonging to the temple of Amon-Ra. With minimal intervention, Ben Glaetzer makes elegant wines which are regarded as classics. From exclusively dry grown Barossa Shiraz vines, fifty to a hundred and thirty years of age, grown to prestigious Ebenezer sites. Vinified in one and two tonnes open top fermenters, hand plunged thrice daily. A portion completes ferments and malolactic under oak. The assemblage is matured sixteen months on lees in a combination of exclusively new, mostly French oak hogsheads.
Deeply saturated scarlet colour. Amon-Ra shows the hallmark richness of Glaetzer flagship Shiraz, exhibiting singular intensity and perfume, taking aromatic expression to another level. A wine of freshness and refinement, great purity of fruit and firm but fine tannin structure with ageability, a Shiraz of great structure and remarkable power.
