Glaetzer Anaperenna 2012
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
Youthful crimson-purple; a shiraz cabernet blend that has awesome depth, yet is not the least extractive, and carries the burden of its alcohol very well. Satsuma plum and sundry spice-poached black fruits, licorice and oak all join the flavour queue, tannins the finishing line.
A blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Anaperenna is profoundly scented of creme de cassis, blueberry compote and black cherry pie with hints of aniseed, pepper, chargrilled meat and underbrush. Big, full-bodied and voluptuous on the palate, the generous blend of blackberry and meaty, savory flavors is structured by a solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and refreshing acid through the very long finish. Drink it now to 2024+.
Rich and concentrated, offering spicy plum, blackberry and rhubarb flavors that point toward the long and expressive finish. Needs cellaring to rein in the fruit. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2015 through 2022. 1,000 cases made.
