2017 Annaperrena 

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.

The name Anaperenna has been inspired by Anna Perenna, the Roman goddess of the New Year. Anna Perenna symbolises the year's cycle and her name translates as 'enduring year'. Romans honoured Anna Perenna with a festival held on the first full moon of the Roman calendar. On March 15th they would ask Anna to grant them longevity, and a healthy year for each glass of wine they drank on that day.

The symbol on the label is the Egyptian Ankh (pronounced: onk). Historically the ankh symbolised sunrise, regeneration, regrowth and renewal.

Variety:
82% Shiraz / 18% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyards:
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. Yield 2.5 tonnes per hectare.
Vintage Conditions:
A wet winter and spring coupled with cooler than average spring temperatures
resulted in slower yet balanced canopy development and healthy flowering
and fruit set. A mild summer with regular rainfall events followed allowing the
fruit to be in no rush to mature, perfect for consistent ripening. Harvest
commenced a few weeks later than recent years. The 2017 wines are of
excellent quality exhibiting purity and lift with firm tannins and exceptional
length.
Vinification:
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.
Tasting Notes
Colour: Impenetrable black with a hint of purple.
Aroma: A spectrum of spicy yet plummy fruit, intense notes of liquorice and
mixed herbs.
Palate: Displaying dense dark flavours yet with freshness and drive.
Peak Drinking: A wine that will mature extremely well with long term cellaring
up to 20 years.
