This wine was formerly labelled as Godolphin for the 2004 and 2005 vintages. However, due to a trademark dispute with another party in an unrelated industry, Ben Glaetzer and team have decided to re-name their flagship Shiraz Cabernet blend ‘Anaperenna’. The name Anaperenna has been inspired by Anna Perenna, the Roman goddess of the New Year. The Romans honoured Anna Perenna with a festival on March 15th (March is the first month in the Roman calendar). They prayed that Anna would let them live one more year for each glass of wine they drank on that day. One can only imagine that March 16th would have been an ideal time for Rome’s enemies to invade!
A blend of 75% Shiraz and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon produced from low yielding 60-85 year old vines located in the Northern Ebenezer district. The wine was matured for 14 months in 100% new oak of which 20% was American and 80% French (70% hogsheads & 30% barriques).
A total saturate of colour with strong paint like cling to the glass walls. Black purple colour with black purple hue. Top note of freshly crushed blackberry, blackcurrant, liquorice and spice, with perfumed violet end note. Mouthfilling palate – an explosion of flavour – very strong black pepper and spice followed by ripe plum and liquorice, delivering a multi layered flavour experience. Fine grained tannins, excellent balance. Very long aftertaste of black pepper, plum and spice.
Cellar 4-5 years (2011-2012)
It was aged for 15 months in new French and American oak. Opaque purple, it offers a sensational bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, meat, game, blueberry, and black currants. This is followed by a surprisingly elegant yet powerful, structured wine with gobs of spicy fruit, ripe tannins, and a plush texture. The long, 60-second finish is succulent and sweet. Give this classy wine 4-6 years in the cellar and enjoy it through 2030.
