Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine. Recipients of prestigious Platinum Award & Best Shiraz Trophy Sommelier International, Double Gold China Wine & Spirit, Gold USA and San Francisco International, Adelaide Hills Chardonnay of Year and Best Barossa Wine of Show, the fruit of prodigal sites has been rejuvenated, to a measure of merit that's cherished throughout the world of inestimable, old vineyard wines...

Glaetzer Anaperenna CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Anaperenna is the Roman goddess of New Year. She is also a seamless fusion of fruit from dry grown, low yielding, very old vines, some over a century of age, planted to ancient sites within the elite Ebeneezer appellation in the Barossa's north. A mostly Shiraz wine, the very low cropped Cabernet component contributes intense fruit flavours with a low extraction rate of smaller berries, large seeds and greater skin to flesh ratio. The savouryness of Cabernet combines with the generosity of Shiraz to give Anaperenna great texture and power, structure and finesse.

From vines trained to standard single wire, with permanent arm rod and spur. Many of the very old vines, 80-130 years old, have now been trained onto a trellis for ease of pruning, harvesting, disease and frost control. Scant vineyard yields of ½ to one ton per acre are central to the intense concentration. Vinified in one and two tonnes open top fermenters with hand plunges thrice daily. Completed primary on skins, a component finishes ferments in oak, matured on lees to maintain fruit profile and animation, minimal SO2, topped up every three weeks. Matured sixteen months in a selection of completely new, mostly French oak hogsheads, followed by unfiltered bottling.
Dark ruby colour. Nose of chocolates and crushed herb, blackberries, cedar and smoke. A tightly focused palate with fine grained tannin and incredible density, savouryness and crushed herbs, fresh black fruits and espresso spice. A wine of great purity and expression, the finish is fresh and lively with flavours that linger and linger.
