"Very deep, bright, youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is intense and plummy, with sousbois and foresty nuances plus some spice notes together with creosote, tar and charcoal. A massive wine, deep and rich and concentrated, with profound flavour and tremendous persistence. The tannins are powdery and drying, but the richness of the wine more than balances it. Licorice, graphite and plenty of char-oak. A tour de force."

"I love what Glaetzer's inclusion of Cabernet brings, 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."

"Glaetzer Anaperenna is a seamless fusion of the two varieties Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Voluptuous, opulent and yet refined, with a very long and satisfying finish.


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. Bottled unfiltered to ensure minimal intervention with the wine’s natural characteristics.


Impenetrable black with a hint of purple. A spectrum of spicy yet plummy fruit, intense notes of liquorice and mixed herbs. Displaying dense dark flavours yet with freshness and drive. A wine that will mature extremely well with long term cellaring up to 20 years."
