TASTING NOTES
APPEARANCE A lovely, translucent ruby.
NOSE The tightly intermingled perfume carries Tom’s Block characters of savoury tobacco, earthy forest and nori-like ocean breeze. Delicate red berry
notes move into savoury tones of cherry pip, mushroom, white clay, brie rind and tamari. A floral fragrance of violets frames this elegant vintage.
PALATE A restrained and ethereal rendition of Margaret River Cabernet, the body is plush and shapely, with lovely red berry fruit characters and super
fine, talc-like tannins of unbelievable length. Graceful and sophisticated with a savoury core, the delicate complexity of perfumes linger on the long,
drying finish.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS
2017 was an elegant, late season harvest resulting in beautifully ripe fruit, well preserved bright fruit fragrance and a long, delicate tannin profile. The
unique small sections of Tom’s old blocks were hand-harvested from 7 to 24 April, destemmed only without crushing and then wild fermented as whole
berries. The Cabernet Sauvignon was static fermented, gently pumped over through a splash tub, then left on skins for up to 33 days to stabilise
and become structurally sound. The Petit Verdot and Malbec were open fermented, hand-plunged and pressed dry. Each small batch fermentation
was basket-pressed and gently transferred to fine French oak for 19 months of maturation. With minimal rack and return, this wine was aged on its fine
lees, bringing beautiful savoury elements and soft tannins to this delicate vintage.
VINTAGE DESCRIPTION
2017 was a cooler and later vintage than the previous 10 years; a year of elegant, structural, slightly lighter bodied wines; though ripe in flavour,
vibrant and very perfumed. Higher than average yields in combination with a cooler season contributed to delayed ripening of the fruit and good
retention of acidity. Some timely warmth and sunshine occurred throughout January, although February temperatures remained moderate with some
rainfall. With the cooler weather, canopy management and fruit thinning was imperative to mitigate disease pressures and allow for even, persistent
ripening. There was a warm start to March to finish the white harvest, followed by the driest April since 1982, allowing the reds to ripen beautifully

Vasse Felix, Margaret River’s founding wine estate, was established by Dr Thomas Brendan Cullity in 1967. Among his first plantings were
Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec vines, from which he produced the estate’s first red wine. The Tom Cullity descends from these original vines
and represents the purest expression of our history, place and vintage; the pinnacle of Vasse Felix.

Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet

Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet

Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet is a seamless fusion of the two varieties Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Voluptuous, opulent and yet refined, with a very long and satisfying finish.

The name Anaperenna has been inspired by Anna Perenna, the Roman goddess of the New Year. Anna Perenna symbolises the year’s cycle and her name translates as ‘enduring year’. Romans honoured Anna Perenna with a festival held on the first full moon of the Roman calendar. On March 15th they would ask Anna to grant them longevity, and a healthy year for each glass of wine they drank on that day.

The symbol on the label is the Egyptian Ankh (pronounced: onk). Historically the ankh symbolised sunrise, regeneration, regrowth and renewal.

The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family left Germany on board the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer “Habsburg” and took seven weeks to reach their final destination of Port Adelaide. From here they settled in a country town called Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley where they started their new life in Australia. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley.

 

Vinification:

Fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters, hand plunged 3 times daily. Matured for 16 months in 100% new oak hogshead barrels (92% French and 8% American) and matured on lees to maintain fruit profile and animation. Bottled unfiltered to ensure minimal intervention with the wine’s natural characteristics.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Deep garnet with bright purple hues.

Aroma: Lovely herbal lift with notes of blackberry, anise and spice box.

Palate: Tightly wound, layered spice complements deep, dark fruit elements. Supple tannins contribute to palate length with well integrated seamless acidity.

Peak Drinking: A wine that will mature extremely well with long term cellaring up to 20 years.

Reviews

‘Deep purple-black and a little closed on the nose with very pure blackberry and plum preserves, some red fruit and floral highlights intermingled with menthol, espresso and a whiff of coconut and spices, the full-bodied 2012 Velvet Glove is a big, rich and concentrated wine with a great tannic backbone that is both firm and fine. It is complemented by refreshing acidity and a very long finish with the liquorice and chocolate coming through. Drink it now to 2025+.’ – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, www.erobertparker.com

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz – Langmeil’s original vineyard, the Freedom, was planted in 1843 and survives to this day. Planted by the Lutheran forebears who were escaping religious persecution and war in Prussia, just seven years after the state of South Australia was colonised. They came to their new homeland, from Persecution to Freedom, to worship and find peace in our beloved Barossa. The Freedom 1843 is testament to the best of the Barossa, and the determination and independent vision of the Bitter and Lindner families at Langmeil, who have farmed in the district for five generations.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz has the following characteristics.

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes, mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spices.
Palate: Rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spices and lovely, silky tannins. A full-bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and allspice and in combination, flow through to the lengthy, brambly fruit finish.

Freedom is the name of a remarkable patch of vines that have stood the test of time. Today, this vineyard underpins Langmeil’s and the Lindner family’s dedication to old vine preservation and winemaking.
Firmly planted at the heart of the historic winery site, this one-acre patch of gnarly and proud, dry-grown vines is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving shiraz vineyard planted in 1843.
Upon discovering this hidden treasure amongst the once derelict property, the vines were revived and dedicated to pioneer Christian Auricht who had fled his native Prussia for freedom from religious persecution. It was Auricht who settled the original Langmeil trading village in 1842, putting down his own roots in the Barossa soil and creating a home for his family, for generations to come. It is here that Auricht planted the Freedom vineyard as part of his mixed farm.
Predominantly planted on alluvial loam and red clay over limestone and ironstone, each vine’s roots penetrate deeply into the layers of quarry sand and gravel in the underlying water table of Barossa’s North Para River. In optimum vintages, it produces a low yielding crop of just two tonnes per acre.
From this vineyard Langmeil crafts a wine that sits at its pinnacle of winemaking, The Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz.

Diana Madeline Cullen always liked the cooler seasons for Cabernet Sauvignon, especially the 1982. The cooler vintages make wines of great elegance and longevity.
The 1982 Cabernet Merlot (as it was known then) last day of harvest was the 22nd of April, versus the 12th of April for the 2017 vintage.
A great tribute to the biodynamic farming, shining even in the unusual vintages.

All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. Grapes are harvested by hand on fruit and flower days according to the astrological calendar. The wines have no additions of yeast, acid or malolactic culture, and are in this sense natural wines which express the place and land on which they are grown, the vintage and the people.

Red wine quality is defined to a large extent by the ripeness of tannin. The wine style is framed around these fine grained tannins coaxed from grapes grown on low yielding vines. This is the theme for all Cullen red wines and gives finesse, flavour and longevity.
