Ben gives context to the naming: “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.'” Bottled under cork.
Glaetzer, Anaperenna, Shiraz/Cabernet, Barossa Valley, 2019
Concentrated and potent: obsidian black with profound licorice, sweet vanilla oak, blackberry and bramble, shiny black olive, roasting coffee beans and plum jam. Full, nearing unctuous: the syrupy flesh threatens to wobble and loll but keeps itself upright and powering through to a precision and keen finish. Big style from the big end of town, at dare I say it: a value price.
Rating: 18.5/20 (94/100)
