Our opinion:

Glaetzer’s Anaperenna offers a fantastic price to quality ratio. The wine is a blend of Shiraz with a touch of Cabernet (approximately 18%) which gives “the wine increased fragrance and length”. When interviewed about his 2018's, Ben Glaetzer boldly declared that 2018 is "an absolute cracking year—you're going to see some great wines." He certainly wasn’t wrong about that with the 2018 vintage of Anaperenna being the joint highest scoring vintage of this wine (WA). The Anaperenna carries great weight, layers of fruit, and a long seamless finish that will leave you wanting more.

 

What the critics say:

97 Points | Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

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.

 

Glaetzer

"These are small volume, artisinal efforts that capture the pure essence of old vine Barossa Shiraz and Grenache"

- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Ben Glaetzer or as many call him, the ‘Baron of the Barossa” produces some of the most iconic wines in the Barossa. Stepping away from the trend of power and huge tannins, Ben focuses on balance with the fruit, with the alcohol, oak and complexities all layering together harmoniously. Glaetzer’s wines are often named ‘wine of the vintage’ by the the lieks of the Wine Advocate.


Glaetzer iconic labels are easy to distinguish but it’s the Amon-Ra that grabs our attention the most which Egyptian inspired design. In Egyptian mythology, Amon-Ra is considered to be the king of all gods and the eye on the label is the eye of Horus a powerful Egyptian symbol of protection. It is represented as a figure with six parts, corresponding to what Egyptians regarded as the six senses; touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell and thought. It’s these six senses that Glaerzter aims to please with his wines. The Amon-Ra was recently added to the 7th Edition of the Langton’s Classification as ‘Excellent’ due to its high quality and great prestige. Further information can be found here. If you love big, rounded, complex yet elegant wines, then Glaetzer is for you.
