Glaetzer Anaperenna 2017
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
I love what Glaetzer's inclusion of Cabernet brings to the 2017 Anaperenna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon, giving it additional fragrance and length. Lifted aromas of mint, raspberries and dark chocolate mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate is rich and velvety but never heavy, framed by supple tannins that turn silky on the long, long finish. Showing great focus, energy and intensity, expect it to still be going strong in a decade.
Opens with a mouthful of perfectly ripe, thick wild blackberry and kirsch flavors, with details of white pepper, bay laurel and orange zest, plump and smooth. Offers thick but seamless tannins, revealing a touch of malt on the finish. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2034. 450 cases made, 225 cases imported.
