Wine Advocate 97 points - Very deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Amon Ra reveals intense notes of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry compote and licorice with nuances of cloves, allspice, chocolate box and salami as well as a whiff of espresso. The 100% Shiraz palate offers a beast of a wine that is densely packed with black fruit and baking spice flavors and is supported with firm, grainy tannins and crisp acid through to a finish with excellent persistence. Drink it 2015 to 2025+.  (Feb 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Supple and expressive, layered with clove- and nutmeg-accented cherry and floral flavors, coming together seamlessly on the sleek finish. Has integrity and depth. Best from 2015 through 2020.—H.S. (Apr 23 2014)

Wine maker notes
The key to Amon-Ra Shiraz is balancing the fruit and tannin extraction, rather than maximising it. The fruit has such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them.

Darkly concentrated and rich yet maintaining poise and freshness, the 2012 Amon-Ra displays masses of dark fruit and spice on the nose and an alluring depth and structure on the palate. Notes of black liquorice, blackcurrant, and dark cherry lead into firm, finely grained tannin and impressive length. A wine destined to impress and reward with long term cellaring.


Producer
The Glaetzer philosophy focuses simply on the production of small-volume, super premium wines. The company holds a firm belief that the wines are made in the vineyard – a combination of the French notion of terroir combined with Australian vineyard site knowledge. The wines are produced from vines grown in well-drained sandy clay loam over a solid limestone pan. This particular soil, widely recognized as the best for dry grown Shiraz , is limited to the Ebenezer region in the northwestern part of the Barossa Valley . Yields are exceptionally low, with 1 to 1 1/2 tons per acre of Shiraz from some of the 80-year old vines being common. Glaetzer has exceptional fruit, and thus opts for a minimalist approach.
