The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties: Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Almost opaque in color, the wine has masses of blackcurrant fruit on the nose with aromas of liqorice and mixed spice. The palate is full-bodied yet has great refinement and focus. The Cabernet structure will take some time to fill out and develop, meaning the wine is precise and tight at release with a high degree of minerality. This will be one of the longest lived of the Anaperenna releases thus far.
"Glass-staining purple. Highly perfumed, expansive bouquet offers blackberry, cherry-cola, incense and dried violet, with slow-mounting minerality. On the palate, it's lively but concentrated as well, with incisive flavors of dark fruit and floral pastille underscored by intense floral and mineral qualities. Stains the tongue and finishes with excellent clarity and juiciness."
