91-94 POINTS

The 2004 Bishop (100% Shiraz aged 14 months in both hogsheads and small barrels) is fashioned from some of Ben Glaetzer’s “younger” vines (only 40-80 years old). A spicy, peppery, earthy, cherry, blackberry, and licorice-scented bouquet is turbo-charged, soaring from the glass. This full-bodied, savory, heady, rich wine boasts impressive balance, concentration, and overall mouthfeel.

 
One of the stars in the Epicurean portfolio, the young Ben Glaetzer is establishing a reputation for high quality in South Australia, not only for the wines from his home winery, but also for his brilliant efforts under the Amon Ra and Mitolo labels. These are small volume, artisinal efforts that capture the pure essence of old vine Barossa Shiraz and Grenache. This 2004 was tasted just prior to bottling.

Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate # 161 (Oct 2005)

Next up the chain is the Bishop Shiraz (93-94 points), predominantly sourced from 30 to 60-year-old vines in the Ebenezer sub-district of the Barossa, but with some 80-year-old vine contribution. It is a very lively wine, with an exuberant mix of blackberry, spice and mocha, supported by savoury tannins underwriting the structure. The 20 per cent new French and American oak contribution melts into the background. Accessible now, it will develop for 10 to 15 years.

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
