Glaetzer 2015 Shiraz- Cabernet "Anaperenna"
This wine has a vibrant nose of sweet herbs, cherry and cassis. A mouth filling palate with superb freshness and silky, linear tannins make for a wine that will mature extremely well with long term cellaring up to 20 years.
Exceptional old vine fruit was sourced from the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Vine age 30—100 year old Shiraz and 30—130 year old Cabernet. Above average winter rain followed by warm spring temperatures resulted in healthy vines showing significant early bud growth. Mild temperatures during December and January coupled with good end of
January rain set up the vines nicely for the ripening period.
Fermented in 1 and 2 ton 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.
