The 2005 Glaetzer Bishop is dense plum/purple in colour, with crushed black pepper, liquorice and anise on the nose. The use of 2nd and 3rd year old oak has allowed the fruit profile to shine. The palate is rich and ripe yet maintains a seamless integrated tannin structure and a lively dryi finish. The 2005 shows more vibrant fruit than the 2004 - a reflection of the higher levels of aromatics from the 2005 vintage. The wine will age well for up to 6 to 8 years.

91-93/100
The Wine Advocate
Readers should think of it as a French Vacqueyras on steroids. From 60-year-old vines in the Ebenezer district of Barossa, the 2005 Shiraz Bishop sees mostly French oak. It reveals a dense ruby/purple hue, beautiful, attractive notes of pepper, spice box, blackberries, and currants, and amazing richness as well as surprising elegance and definition.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Inky ruby. Ripe boysenberry and creme de cassis on the nose, plus a pungent yellow rose quality. The lush, creamy dark berry flavors veer toward inky but are lifted by bright mineral and floral pastille notes. Exotic spices arrive on the finish, which is seductively sweet yet precise. There's lots going on here.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2007



89/100
Wine Spectator
Firm, with an earthy, gamy edge to the well-focused cherry and berry flavors, all lingering on the fine-grained, somewhat leathery finish.
