Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet 2018 (75 cl)
Shiraz
Cabernet Sauvignon
Australia

Average review score: 94,3

Parker : 97   Suckling : 94   Huon Hooke : 94   Halliday : 96   The Wine Front : 90+

We are dealing with a very beautiful Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon, full-bodied, rich and opulent.
The nose announces the mouth: blackberries, plums, blackcurrants, violets, woody, vanilla. Everything is present in a perfect balance with an exceptional richness of fruit. 

This wine is unanimous by all critics (94 to 97) except one (The Wine Front) who loves wine except for its finish. When I tasted it, this finish neither disturbed nor intrigued me. But it is the whole point of having several opinions to enlighten the amateur. The solution is to taste the wine using the vinottes to make up your own mind before buying a bottle. Cheers! 

To taste with game birds, lamb shanks or prime rib.

 

Robert Parker : 97/100 

For the Annapurna Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Glaetzer blended 18% Cabernet Sauvignon to give the wine more flavor and length. The nose is smoky, slightly grassy and marked by soft oak tinged with cedar and vanilla, but it also offers beautiful aromas of cassis and blackberries. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the flavors are well controlled by fine-grained tannins. This wine has it all: extraordinary intensity, complexity, length and texture.

James Suckling : 94/100

The 2018 vintage delivered such quality in these full-bodied reds from Barossa. They have all the necessary maturity, with vitality, depth and freshness. The aromas of blackberries and cassis, as well as leaves and violets, lead to a very deep, dense and juicy palate that carries black and blue fruit flavors so succulent. Completely drinkable now, but better from 2024.

Huon Hooke The Real Review : 94/100

Dark and very deep violet color that colors the glass. The bouquet is chocolatey and richly woody, concentrated and dense, the same flavors on the palate, which are rich and opulent. Sweet fruit. A beautiful Shiraz in a perfect style.

James Halliday : 96/100

82% Shiraz (30 to 100 year old vines), 18% Cabernet Sauvignon (80 to 130 year old vines) yielding 2.5t / ha, open fermentation, hand dipped, maturation for 16 months in new barrels ( 92% French, 8% American).
Full-bodied, blackberries, plums, supple tannins, good oak. It's easy to say it's too cheap.

The Wine Front : 90 + / 100 

This cuvée was once called Godolphin, which always made me say "this wine is awful" (puns in English God Awfull), although it never was; but play on words and the damage is done. I am sorry. A mixture of different sources of fruit of different ages contributes to this, and it's new oak.

Energy, vitality and a continuous flow of fruit, spices, woods and minty and grassy details. You can feel it picked up, stretched in a way, but it gives the palate a nice softness when you spend time with the wine. Black berries, sweet and salty plum, dark bitter chocolate, a sheath of light but sandy tannins giving a decent shape. Alas, the finish is tangy, lemony and tangy, taking away the original pleasure with what seems to be an afterthought character ... maybe time will correct that. In general, the fruity sensation is excellent. That finish, however .... Overall, a glorious scent, balanced, bold and elegant.
