Natalie's Score: 89/100

Bishop 2016 is a robust Shiraz from the Barossa Valley, produced from 30 to 100 year old grapevines. "Bishop" is the maiden name of Judith Glaetzer, wife of Colin, who started the winemaking family business in the Barossa Valley 30 years ago. Today Ben continues the tradition. The vines are dry-farmed in the Ebenezer sub-region. This flavoursome red is very approachable now, tannins are soft. The wine has seen extensive oak ageing with 15 months in 40% new 245 litre barrels, 90% French and 10% American and is well-integrated. Lots of ripe black fruit texture and savoury flavours on this full-bodied red.

Shiraz food pairings: game meats, rare roast beef, spice-braised lamb, burgers with blue cheese.

Bishop 2016 is a robust, ready-to-drink-now Shiraz from the Barossa Valley, produced from 30 to 100 year old grapevines. "Bishop" is the maiden name of Judith Glaetzer, wife of Colin, who started the winemaking family business in the Barossa Valley 30 years ago. Today Ben continues the tradition. The vines are dry-farmed in the Ebenezer sub-region. This flavoursome red is very approachable now, tannins are soft. The wine has seen extensive oak ageing with 15 months in 40% new 245 litre barrels, 90% French and 10% American and is well-integrated. Drink now and for the next 15 years. Pair with a rare rib roast. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
