The uncompromising pursuit of excellence at every step of viticulture and vinification is the key to success for John and Margarete Glaetzer's precious, limited release wines. John and Margarete's vision come to fruition in 1977 when scant amounts of John's Blend inaugural 1974 vintage was released to auspicious critical acclaim. In 1995 the rich and intense Margarete Shiraz was added to the range, providing the opportunity for red wine connoiseurs throughout the world to experience the august efforts of one of Australia's legendary winemakers.
A prolific award winning winemaker and sibling to one of the nation's great oenological dynasties, John Glaetzer was the right hand man to Wolf Blass throughout the breathtaking run of Jimmy Watson winning efforts in the 1970s. This timeless style of Australian red continues the award winning tradition of John Glaetzer, after many years crafting some of Australia's most memorable vintages and flagship labels. Small parcels of Shiraz grown to the rich alluvial soils of Langhorne Creek and salubrious sites in McLaren Vale are crushed, fermented, pressed and tranferred to oak hogsheads for maturation. These small batches of grapes become John's Blend, a select, super premium label of extremely limited production.
TASTING NOTES
Intense deep red with purple hues. Powerful chocolate, mint and spice with supporting vanillin oak. Medium to full bodied, rich with very soft structure of complex fruit flavour supported by elegant oak. Extraordinally fine tannins assure that Margarete will continue to evolve complexity and develop character for many years to come.
