97pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
94pts James Suckling
The 2018 vintage has delivered such strong quality in these full-bodied reds from the Barossa. This has all the ripeness with vitality, depth and freshness. Aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants, as well as leaves and violets, lead to a very deep, dense and juicy palate that carries such luscious, black and blue-fruit flavors. Very drinkable now, but better from 2024.
The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties: Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright and vibrant dark purple color with an expressive nose of black currant, liquorice and anise. A finely structured and elegant tannin structure supports luscious flavors of chocolate and dark berries with fresh acidity. A wine that will evolve very well with long term cellaring .
