Ben Glaetzer Anaperenna 2019
Glaetzer Anaperenna is a seamless fusion of the two varieties Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Voluptuous, opulent and yet refined, with a very long and satisfying finish.
The name 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'. Romans honoured Anna Perenna with a festival held on the first full moon of the Roman calendar. On March 15th they would ask Anna to grant them longevity, and a healthy year for each glass of wine they drank on that day.
The symbol on the label is the Egyptian Ankh (pronounced: onk). Historically the ankh symbolised sunrise, regeneration, regrowth and renewal.
Oof, this one packs in a lot of detail and character. Slow moving, thickset, dense and ripe with a huge flourish of creamy, oozing, sweet spice-laden oak seasoning coupling to all the inky, dark berry and plummy fruit characters. Massive, warm, lavish and yet a lift of freshness in the mix too. Huge, done so very well. - Mike Benny, WBM, Australia’s Wine Business Magazine, September/October 2021, 95 Points
