GLAETZER ANAPERENNA BAROSSA SHIRAZ CABERNET
Awarded Trophy for best Australian red blend over £10 at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2008
Another wine from a winemaker and that continues to impress and excite. I cant praise this wine highly enough, have a read through our critics section, it seems they cant praise it highly enough either.
Try with slow-cooked lamb shanks with oregano and rosemary, and creamy mash.
Buy with confidence in the quality.

The 2006 Shiraz (75%) – Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) “Anaperenna” is the wine formerly known as Godolphin, the change resulting from a trademark dispute. It was aged for 15 months in new French and American oak. Opaque purple, it offers a sensational bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, meat, game, blueberry, and black currants. This is followed by a surprisingly elegant yet powerful, structured wine with gobs of spicy fruit, ripe tannins, and a plush texture. The long, 60-second finish is succulent and sweet. Give this classy wine 4-6 years in the cellar and enjoy it through 2030. Hats off to Ben Glaetzer for producing an extraordinary portfolio!

Brash and youthful, with the juicy currant and cedar flavours of Cabernet whistling through the blackberry and exotic spice of the Shiraz, lending this an upright stance, with lively acidity and firm tannins. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2009 through 2016.

Densely packed blackberry, blackcurrant and plum fruit with ripe, plush tannins woven throughout, plus scoops of vanilla and chocolate. Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon.
