Anaperenna by Ben Glaetzer 2018 Barossa Valley South Australia

$47.95

 

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:
The growing season started well with above average winter rainfall but was
followed by well below average spring and summer rainfall coupled with warm
temperatures. Fortunately our vines were in perfect balance with healthy
canopies assisting even ripening and fruit flavour development. Harvest
commenced very early in late January. Calm Indian summer conditions began
in early March which were perfect for finishing off vintage. The resultant 2018
wines are of exceptional quality featuring intense depth of colour, astounding
aromatic purity plus richness and brightness on the palate.
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: Dark purple hues frame a depth of black.
Aroma: Complex layers of black fruits with a slight herbal lift and notes of anise
spice.
Palate: Hints of dark cherry and dried spice with seamlessly integrated tannin.
Peak Drinking: A wine that will mature extremely well with long term cellaring
up to 20 years.

The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family left Germany on board the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer “Habsburg” and took seven weeks to reach their final destination of Port Adelaide. From here they settled in a country town called Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley where they started their new life in Australia. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley.

Over a century later, winemaking patriarch Colin Glaetzer established Glaetzer Wines, a boutique family owned winery producing premium Barossa Valley wines. Today Colin’s son Ben carries on the wine making traditions at Glaetzer Wines. Indeed it was the birth of Glaetzer Wines that signalled a new era for Colin’s family which boasts more than its fair share of winemakers.
