The Wine Advocate
For the 2018 Anaperenna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon, Glaetzer blended in 18% Cabernet Sauvignon to give the wine increased fragrance and length. The nose is smoky, slightly herbal and marked by sweet cedar- and vanilla-tinged oak, but it also offers great cassis and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the flavors are kept nicely in check by fine-grained tannins. This wine has it all: terrific intensity, complexity, length and texture.
96/100 punten, Special Value
82% shiraz (30-100yo vines), 18% cabernet sauvignon (80-130yo vines) yielding 2.5t/ha, open-fermented, hand-plunged, matured for 16 months in new hogsheads (92% French, 8% American). Full-bodied, plum blackberry, supple tannin, good oak. Easy to argue this is too cheap.
The 2018 vintage has delivered such strong quality in these full-bodied reds from the Barossa. This has all the ripeness with vitality, depth and freshness. Aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants, as well as leaves and violets, lead to a very deep, dense and juicy palate that carries such luscious, black and blue-fruit flavors. Very drinkable now, but better from 2024.
