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.
