GLAETZER ANAPERENNA 2015

Tony Keys - 95/100 : " No shrinking violet, this wine. But then no great brute either. It’s taut, tight, and rich, so very rich. One knows it’s naughty, but as is the case with all naughty excesses, willpower is fickle and weak and stands no chance."

 

James Halliday - 96/100 : " 82% shiraz, 18% cabernet sauvignon from 30-100yo vines from Ebenezer, open-fermented, plunged, matured for 16 months in new French (92%) and American (8%) hogsheads. A very good example of full-bodied Barossa Valley shiraz, the cabernet simply riding shotgun; the palate has exceptional depth to its layers of black fruits, licorice, earth, oak and tannins, but emerges with perfect balance."

 

 

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate : “...offers a sensational bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, meat, game, blueberry, and black currants. This is followed by a surprisingly elegant yet powerful, structured wine with gobs of spicy fruit, ripe tannins, and a plush texture. The long, 60-second finish is succulent and sweet. Give this classy wine 4-6 years in the cellar and enjoy it through 2030. Hats off to Ben Glaetzer for producing an extraordinary portfolio!”
