- Cellar 6 - 8 years (2025-2027)
- ABV 15%
- Closure: Cork
A blend of 82% Shiraz and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz vines are aged between 30 and 100 years old, and the Cabernet between 30 and 130. Yields are 2.5 tonnes per hectare with the fruit fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters and hand plunged 3 times daily. Matured for 16 months in 100% new oak hogshead barrels (92% French and 8% American).
Impenetrable inky black core with a very deep dark red black hue. A dazzling array of blackberry, blackcurrant and liquorice aromas sail out of the glass closely followed by dark chocolate, vanillin oak, subtle mocha and spicy tobacco notes. Full in body, possessing terrific power and brimming with richness, the palate is engulfed with concentrated blackberry, dark plum, blackcurrant and liquorice flavours that have an opulent feel. Forming the undercard is spicy vanillin cedar, subtle earthy tobacco characters and pepper. Firmly built yet silky in its feel, good fresh acidity and robust, ripe tannins provide a great framework. Magnificent depth concluding rich and very long.
Cellar 6-8 years.
I love what Glaetzer's inclusion of Cabernet brings to the 2017 Anaperenna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon, giving it additional fragrance and length. Lifted aromas of mint, raspberries and dark chocolate mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate is rich and velvety but never heavy, framed by supple tannins that turn silky on the long, long finish. Showing great focus, energy and intensity, expect it to still be going strong in a decade. Drink 2020-2035.
