Glaetzer Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz 2008

Glaetzer, like Teusner, largely don't seem to produce a bad wine.  The 2008 Directors' Cut is another success: an aroma of pepper, plums and chocolate, with trademark intensity.  The palate was very rich, powerful (I wrote "full on") and curranty.  89 to 90 points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: around $30
