2020 Glaetzer 'Anaperenna' Cabernet Shiraz, Barossa Valley

The Glaetzer family have been in the Barossa Valley since 1888, but with Colin Glaetzer the vision of producing super premium Barossa valley wines became more serious, especially with 30 years of winemaking experience. Today though it is Ben, Colin’s son, who is in charge of making these somewhat elegant wines with huge finesse, but unmistakably South Australian - Barossa. The name Anaperenna has been inspired by Anna Perenna, the Roman goddess of the New Year. Her name symbolises the year’s cycle and it translates to ‘enduring year’. What a name for a generous, refined and with a very long finish wine made from vines between 30-100 years old Shiraz and 30-130 years old Caberent Sauvignon. Sourced from the Ebenezer sub district at the Northern tip of the Barossa Valley, the yields are super low at 2.5 hectares per hectare; so naturally, very small production.

Why do we like it?

2020 was a vintage of quality but not of quantity. This was amplified by frost in October affecting flowering. The result is very low yields, but wonderful quality and character. Shiraz stands out as the quality leader for the vintage, offering extraordinary colour and flavour. The wine was fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters, hand plunged 3 times daily and it was matured in 100% new oak for 16 months. Aromas and flavours are of compoted dark berries, slight herbal fennel and bay leaves but as well a slight earthy and mushroom development even at just only 3 years of age. This is a big but elegant wine that will age well at least for another 10 years so you can drink it now or later; wither will give you immense pleasure
