Details

"A blend of 82% Shiraz and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz vines are aged between 30 and 100 years old, and the Cabernet between 30 and 130. Yields are 2.5 tonnes per hectare. Fermented in 1- and 2-tonne open fermenters, hand plunged 3 times daily. Matured for 16 months in 100% new oak hogshead barrels (92% French and 8% American) and matured on lees to maintain fruit profile and animation.

 

Glaetzer Anaperenna is a seamless fusion of these two classic varieties. Voluptuous, opulent and yet refined, with a very long and satisfying finish. Vibrant purple in appearance, with a pronounced nose of sweet herbs, cherry and cassis. It has a mouth-filling palate with superb freshness and silky, linear tannins."
