    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.

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.
