  • Glaetzer Bishop is a true expression of Barossa Shiraz that is elegantly structured with a long finish. 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.

  • Colour: Vibrant purple.
    Aroma: Hints of cut plum, dried spice and dark chocolate.
    Palate: Mid palate freshness with flavours of blackcurrant and mocha. Finely tuned tannins provide structure and length.
  • The family-owned boutique winery of Glaetzer Wines has been in the business since 1995. It is located in Australia’s premium wine area of Barossa Valley. It was during 1888 that the first Glaetzer family member moved to Australia from Germany. Today, this family is highly regarded as one of the most ancient viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley.

    The grapes for the premium quality of Glaetzer wines are cultivated in a small place towards the north of Barossa Valley – Ebenezer. This place is filled with dry-grown vineyards that produce wines that are true representations of the Australian culture and heritage. The low rainfall and a reasonably humid climate of this region ensure that the grapes grown here are fully-flavoured and soft. The second reason for the great quality of grapes produced in Ebenezer is because of the unique soil quality. Sandy-clayey-loamy soil that is well-drained out is applied over a limestone pan, making it one of the best types of soil for growing the Shiraz varietals.

    The winemaking process is done in such a way that it doesn’t endanger the environment at all. Only a neutral strain of yeast is used for fermentation to ensure that the grapes don’t lose their natural flavours. French and American hogshead barrels are used in this winery for the process of natural malolactic fermentation, which gives a silky and smooth texture to the wines crafted here.

    Though only limited Glaetzer wines are produced every year, the winery is known for producing wines that are unique and intense. The four popular wines produced here are the following:

    • Amon-Ra – Made from high-quality Shiraz varietals and is known for its elegance and fine balance
    • Anaperennia –Bold and opulent wine made with the smooth combination of the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals
    • Bishop – Made from the Classic Barossa Shiraz varietal and has an excellent structure
    • Wallace – Made by blending the Shiraz and Grenache varietals and is soft yet full-flavoured
