bishop-shiraz Photo by Steve DavisForgive us, Ben Glaetzer, for we have sinned.

During the podcast, I got Ben’s bloodlines mixed up, making him John Glaetzer’s son and then marrying him off to Colin’s wife.

For the record, Ben is the son of Colin Glaetzer and John Glaetzer is his uncle, also known as Wolf Blass’ former winemaker extraordinaire.

This drop, the 2010 Bishop, delivered everything a Barossa Shiraz promises; rich fruit, big mouth feel and medium tannins.

What took me by surprise was the heat.

This wine is blessed with extra alcohol, warming both the glass and the drinker with a heavenly glow.

Final word: if you try this wine, decant it or let it breathe because it bellows like a large, church pipe organ the longer you let it breathe.
