The Donna Review
This has an wonderful bouquet and is thick in the glass.
As a mixed grape variety, this tastes more Grenache than Shiraz and doesn’t have that Shiraz sharpness. Making this an easy to drink wine and has flavour, with that slightly Shiraz spiciness to it. It is a really enjoyable wine and for under $20 this a good buy. Can easily be drunk with or without food.
They recommend cellaring this for 6-8 years, so I have purchased another one to test this out.

Man with no palate Review
I have got no idea who Ben Glaetzer is or why an Australian wine would have such a high Scotish focus when there aren’t any Scottish wines that I am aware of.
It just all looks completely out of place. But then you drink it. This is a really tasty wine, luscious, rich, full of flavour. Not too acidic. And we would definitely purchase this again.

Wallace Shiraz Grenache by 2019 by Ben Glaetzer Bottle Label Description
Wallace is an old family name of Colin Glaetzer’s wife, Judith whose ancestors hail from the market town of Cupar in Fife, Scotland. This Scottish heritage is now liked to a Glaetzer family tradition of Barossa Valley winemaking started 30 years ago by Colin Glaetzer, and carried on by his son Ben,
Wallace Shiraz Grenache truly highlights the intense flavour compatibility of the two classic grape varieties from the famed Ebenezer Vineyards in the Northern Barossa Valley. Deep rose petal and liquorice fragrances provide aromatic lift. The strawberry brightness of the Grenache provides an exceptional companion to the dark fruited and savoury spiced Shiraz. Wallace is a wine that is immensely enjoyable when young but will also develop additional complexity over 6 to 8 years of cellaring.
