Very deep, bright, youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is intense and plummy, with sousbois and foresty nuances plus some spice notes together with creosote, tar and charcoal. A massive wine, deep and rich and concentrated, with profound flavour and tremendous persistence. The tannins are powdery and drying, but the richness of the wine more than balances it. Licorice, graphite and plenty of char-oak. A tour de force.

The Brief
Why's this wine for you?

If the name Glaetzer already doesn't ring a bell the labels most definitely will, the symbols invoke a thrill of excitement and anticipation around something momentous that's about to happen.

We call it, ‘The hold onto your pants this is going to be a great wine moment’. Catchy, don't you think?

Glaetzer Wines are sourced from a small sub district of the Northern Barossa Valley called Ebenezer. The name Anaperenna has been inspired by the Roman goddess of the New Year, her name translates as "enduring year" and you can be sure this wine can endure for countless decades in your cellar.

Then again some of the waiting has already been done for you with this Museum release. The 2016 Glaetzer Annaperena Shiraz Cabernet captures the seamless union of the two varieties, and impressed both international and domestic critics alike.

This classic Barossan blend showcases what superb sites like Ebenezer can do in fantastic vintages. Pop a bottle on the table at your next meal and you’ll forever be remembered as the legend that bought the show stopping wine.

How's it taste?
Magnificent colour density displaying an inky black core that’s totally impenetrable and a very deep dark purple black hue. Intense dark plum, cassis and liquorice aromas sail out of the glass with elements of vanillin cedar, light tobacco and confectionary also evident. Boasting an awesome level of concentration and richness, a sturdy, muscular tannin structure frames the opulent flavours of blackberries, liquorice and blackcurrant which saturate every corner of the mouth. Nuances of vanillin cedar, earthy tobacco, spice and pepper chime in on the dryish finish which has some grip to it. Exceptional power with a very long ripe blackberry, liquorice, blackcurrant, vanillin cedar, light earth and spicy pepper aftertaste.
How was it made?

Glaetzer Anaperenna is a seamless fusion of the two varieties Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Voluptuous, opulent and yet refined, with a very long and satisfying finish.

The name Anaperenna has been inspired by Anna Perenna, the Roman goddess of the New Year. A blend of 84% Shiraz and 16% 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).

Even bigger, richer and darker than the 2015, the 2016 Anaperenna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon is 84% Shiraz and 16% Cabernet. These are not wines for fans of shy, delicate wines, but neither are they clumsy fruit bombs. This is pleasantly multifaceted, with complex notes ranging from charred beef, black olive and asphalt to blackberries and cassis, all underscored by loam, vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied (15.5% alcohol), it's hugely ripe but balanced, with supple tannins and enough acidity on the long, velvety finish to balance the ledger.

84% shiraz, 16% cabernet sauvignon, open-fermented, matured for 16 months in 100% new hogsheads (92% French, 8% American). The colour is typically deep, the bouquet complex, as is the palate (no surprise), but doesn't hit you with its alcohol (most surprising of all). It's hard to imagine the French oak could be the answer. Regardless, the black fruits (berry and currant) hold sway until the finish, when the alcohol does raise its head. I'm happy to accept that, but would choose my beef steak with care (5cm thick).

A very astute blend that delivers a sum greater than its parts with aromas of cassis, blackberries and redder fruit, which are all nicely intertwined. The palate has a silky, soft and approachable tannin texture with deep and fresh flavors.

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front
Glaetzer’s Anaperenna is an unfiltered Barossa blend of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon that has always embraced its own excess.This 15.5% alc whopper sure does that but, against the odds of its own numbers, it does so in a sure-footed way. Yes this is warm and rich but it’s fluid, juicy even, and the fruit itself maintains a freshness. You have to give it kudos for that. Asphalt, saltbush, redcurrant and even boysenberry characters are at play here, woodsmoke and fresh-roasted nut notes in minor evidence only. It’s sweet and it’s fruit driven. It pushes confidently out through the finish. It makes a good case for the bigger style.
