Producer Notes

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 â€?a nod to Bishop’s link to Amon-Ra and Anaperenna.

Drinking Window: 2022-2032

Vineyard notes:

"Exceptional old vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Vine age 35�20 years old. Yield 3 tonnes per hectare."

Winemaking

Fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters. Extended maceration was employed to enable good tannin development so the wine is soft and approachable early
Ageing
Matured for 16 months in a mix of 40% new oak and 60% 2�3 year old oak hogshead barrels (90% French / 10% American).
