From Barossa's newest generation of superstar winemakers, Ben Glaetzer's Amon-Ra—his top wine—is the label that's gained him the most glory, and for good reason. It's hugely cellar worthy, with a pretty nose of dark cherry fruit, cola, licorice, cocoa powder and a little meatiness in the background. The medium-bodied palate is juicy and restrained, with muscular but silky tannins and a long juicy, savory finish; The perfect example of the elegant style the latest generation of Barossa producers excel at. While approachable now, it would drink best between 2022–2032.
