2006 Glaetzer Anaperenna

Barossa Valley Cabernet-Shiraz Blend, Red Blend more

7/13/2013 - Anonymous wrote: 92 points

Beautiful, deep and complex bouquet with dark forest fruits, a lot of sweet spices and very good oak. On the palate in fact the same; beautiful dark fruits and sweet spices, fresh acidity in a good balance with the sweetness and soft tannin with a pleasant bite. Full bodied wine in its young maturity stage. Might improve a bit over the next 2 - 3 years and will drink nicely until the end of the decade at least. 92 for today.

Really liked this. Likely past its prime, but the big Shiraz flavors are softer as are the tannins, but still loads of red berry fruit, a little spice. Great nose. One bottle left, will likely consume soon.

Dark color. Minimal nose at first, opened up during 1st hour, smooth & mature (but not old) delicious blueberry fruit. Drank over 5 hours and really enjoyed it. Try one now! Not sure how it gets much better.

I had tasted this previously and was blown away by nose & taste.
This evening was hoping recreate the same feeling, but slightly disappointed.
This is a wine which clearly need plenty of time decanted, I only got 1 Hrs of time.
Still, the aromas, flavour and taste are phenomenal .... I like this one.
From the tasting, plenty of pontential for the future !!!

Still very young but already drinking reasonably well. Spicy nose, at first seemed a bit alcoholic but after a while the alcohol subdued. Took about an hour to open fully, with good depth and concentration. Fully bodied but balanced with good acidity. Aftertaste was long and the tannins were very round and embracing. A tad expensive but a very good and well made wine.

Dark, dense, bold, new world fruit forward Aussie. Dark fruit, anise, leather and hint of ginger. This should cellar quite well, maybe till 2025+/-.

This is an aged barossa shiraz at its best. Well integrated, fruit stew, dark cherry, cracked pepper, yet cool and minty at the same time. Love it.

Opened this screwcapped bottle and right away made a 'pop' sound with gas flowing quickly dissipating. Nose was fine, poured and right away noticed it was fizzy. Could also see white residue along the edge of the decanter. As if someone added club soda to the mix. Wonder if a second fermentation had occurred inside the bottle. Anyways, waited 30 min, the fizz subsided but knew it wasn't right. So returned and deemed it defective. First time I've encountered an issue like this.

Anyways second bottle of the night popped and this time, no issues. Decanted for 20 min and it was its usual self. Still tannic and young. Found it not as fresh and lively as my last bottle from a few months ago. Might be going through a shut down phase.

On Day 2, I tasted and this had really opened up with tar, blueberries, pepper, sweet red dark fruits. A Wallace I'm used to having.

Day 3 it was still solid with the same flavours and nose. Anyways interesting to see it evolve like this over 3 days. Will wait till year end or next year before opening the next bottle. Has a lot of time left.

I'm sure this is well-made as far as Aussie shirazes go. Really extracted and powerful black fruit dominates the nose and the palate. A little bit of charred meat and hoisin sauce. Still very much primary despite its age, although whatever tannins there may have been have dissipated. Acidity is on the low side of medium. Not cloying, but it does feel a little loose, and while the fruit is fun and impressive it's a one-glass only type of wine for me.

Decanted about two hours. Wonderful wine. Inky black/purple. Fruit is smooth, complex, plush, integrated without being in-your-face or over the top. Long finish. Great stuff.

A year after my first bottle, I opened one tonight and was pleasantly surprised. This bottle was quite good. Gone were the cherry and bitter notes from the previous bottle. This bottle held notes of blackberries and blueberries, with a nice pepper kick behind it. Fragrant, full, and delicious, I am finally understanding the WA 95+ score.

Outstanding bottle of wine. I like Glaetzer's wines. Big solid fruit and tannins. This one had solid fruit and balanced tannins and was, in a word, yummy.

Absolutely loving this right now. It still has that beautiful plushness of youth but it has mellowed and feels much more balanced and complete. Such high quality fruit here, great concentration without pushing it to far. Black cherries, plums, savoury but with just the right amount of a sweet edge to complement the finish. Carries through with just the right amount of drying tannins and impeccable acid.

The cork was brittle but no leakage had occurred. The wine is fantastic. Big fruit and wonderful legs. However, IT IS TOO YOUNG ! Leave it until 2018 or later. I have two more bottles and will wait to try them.

As good as Barossa shiraz gets, from a vintage that just gets better and better with time.
Long and complex, blueberries, anise, floral notes, tar, earth and wonderful mouth-feel. Ripe tannins are melting away, leaving this wine close to it's peak.
This is one of the few Aussie shiraz at this price point that absolutely improves with age. Highly recommended.

Very deep ruby, this wine shows black cherry, blackberries, cinnamon, vanilla, and charred wood on the youthful nose initially. It has med+ acidity, high tannin, high alcohol, and a gripping intensity on the palate with flavours of black pepper, vanilla, eucalyptus and quite a lot of dark chocolate. Outstanding wine, with all the flavours distinct from one another without blending together. At the moment the alcohol stands out a bit, and this wine will definitely improve with age. Keep.

Dark violet and clear in the glass. Dark berries, bacon, blood, vanilla, and campfire on the nose. Same on the palate with some darker coffee/chocolate undertones as well. Very concentrated and intense. Long, smooth finish which echoed the initial notes. Firm, and very well-balanced with respect to tannins, acid, alcohol, and fruit. 14.7% alcohol seemed appropriate for this wine. Very, very good bottle.

Usually, I am disappointed by "entry-level" wines from premier producers. Not the case here. I am looking forward to experiencing a higher-range Glaetzer, as the 2012 Wallace indicates that this wine maker has serious talent.

The surprise of the night! Garnet color with nose of beets, tomato paste and stuffed pepper. Palate evolved to reveal Bloody Mary-like spices, black pepper, and ground cherry. Not as hot as region or varietal makeup would suggest - a very curious wine. It kept you coming back for more - would've been the wine of the night were it not tasted with an '03 Grange, but it won the value competition hands down. Will seek again for a more interesting drink - great bang for the buck!!

Decanted. Dark wine with no visible age signs. Blackberry and oak influence on the nose. Integrated and supple, oak and alcohol kept in check with a subdued quality and acidic backbone. Excellent, but I've had Amon-Ras in the past with more depth and complexity.
