Nick Glaetzer began his wine making journey with his family in the Barossa Valley, following with vintages in the Languedoc, the Pfalz, Margaret River, the Riverland, Sunraysia, the Hunter Valley and Burgundy. In 2005 Nick landed in Tasmania, searching for cool-climate, super-premium vineyards; perfect for crafting pinot noir, riesling and savory shiraz.
Established in 2008, Glaetzer-Dixon is now an eminent Tasmanian wine maker. The Glaetzer family of winemakers has roots in the Barossa Valley dating back to 1888. In 2011 Nick was named “young wine maker of the year” by Gourmet traveller magazine.
Also in 2011 Nick’s 2010 Mon Pere Shiraz was awarded the prestigious Jimmy Watson Memorial trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show – the first time in the trophy’s 50 year history for a Tasmanian wine.
Nick has planted a 12ha vineyard at Tea Tree in the Coal River Valley, with the first harvest due in 2021.
2014 La Judith Pinot Noir;
“This wine is a quality statement if there ever was one.”
2014 La Judith Shiraz
“Nick Glaetzer’s incredible 2014 La Judith Shiraz smells something like pfeffernüsse and cherry preserves, offering layered aromas of cracked pepper, star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg and red fruit. If Mon Père is Saint-Joseph, this is Hermitage.”
