Glaetzer-Dixon Wines Mon Père Shiraz 2021 (6 Bottles) Glebe, Tasmania

$365.00 GST Included


Elegant red berry, cassis and white pepper aromas mix with integrated raspberry, spice and smoked lardon flavours. Savoury velvet tannins boost the length. The superb 2018 Mon Père is made from a blend of Tasmanian shiraz grapes from the Upper Derwent Valley and Coal River Valley. Aged in 30% new French oak.

The slow rate of ripening in Tasmania is perfect for pinot noir as it gives the seed and stalk tannins more time to mature on the vine. It is this fine tannin in the finished wine structure that sets Tasmanian pinot apart.

Along with incorporating stalks with some pinot ferments, Nick also applies the techniques of co-fermentation (with pinot gris), carbonic maceration, cold soaking and post-ferment maceration. These traditional and natural techniques each impart a unique flavour and texture, creating a layering effect to the final blend.

Glaetzer-Dixon pinots are matured in French oak barriques sourced from coopers based in Burgundy, Nièvre, Cognac, the Rhône Valley and Barossa Valley.



About Glaetzer-Dixon Family Winemakers

In the 1850s Nick Glaetzer’s great, great, great grandparents, Charles and Martha Masters established one of the pioneer Barossa Valley vineyards on their Wroxton Grange property near Angaston. In 1888 Nick’s great, great grandparents Eduard and Anna Marie Glätzer also emigrated to the Barossa Valley, where his family today runs Glaetzer Wines, famous for the legendary Amon Ra shiraz.

Nick made the move to Tasmania in 2005, driven by his obsession with cool climate shiraz and pinot noir. In 2011 he was named Young Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine. His 2010 Mon Père Shiraz was the first Tasmanian wine to win Australia’s most coveted wine award, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, and in 2019 Nick was named a Future 50 winemaker at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).

Nick cut his teeth in the cellars of his family’s Glaetzer Wines in the Barossa and completed his oenology and viticulture degree in Margaret River. He worked in Margaret River, (Leeuwin Estate), the Hunter Valley (Rosemount Estate), the Pfalz region of Germany (Weingut Eugen Müller), Burgundy (Domaine Albert Morot) and the Langeudoc (Domain de la Ferrrandière) before a love of pinot noir drew him to Tasmania. He initially worked alongside Alain Rousseau and Andrew Hood at Frogmore Creek in the Coal River Valley.

In 2008 Nick set up Glaetzer-Dixon Family Winemakers, initially sharing winemaking facilities at Frogmore Creek and Moorilla before moving to a purpose-built cellar in a former ice factory on the edge of Hobart’s CBD.
