The name Godolphin has been linked with excellence in many fields, including politics, education and literature. We are using the same ideals to make this wine.

The label echoes the Ancient Egyptian Ankh symbol (pronunciation: onk). Historically the ankh symbolised sunrise, regeneration, regrowth and renewal. Glaetzer Godolphin made quite an impact in its first 2 vintages - 2004 & 2005. From the 2006 vintage onwards, the wine has been known as Anaperenna, making first two vintages of the wine a collectable addition to any wine cellar.

Godolphin 2004 was declared the "Great Australian Red" in a national competition to find the best shiraz/cabernet sauvignon blend in Australia.

 

Vintage 2004: A mild January was excellent for optimal colour production and flavour development. After heatwave conditions, harvest began earlier than predicted, with the earliest Shiraz being picked in late February. Despite this, quality expectations were high and the Barossa experienced an Indian summer with no huge rainfall events and temperatures ranging between 25 and 30 degrees. The resultant Shiraz has good colour with elegant flavours.

 

Description: The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. A vibrant plummy red in colour. On the nose, there are lifted blackcurrant and briary fruit, expressive of Cabernet Sauvignon, with pure cinnamon and chocolate spice. The Cabernet components remained on skins for 2-3 months and developed a savoury complexity which tightens the shiraz. The palate has leafy, herbaceous notes and rich dark fruit flavours. Well-rounded and velvety, the tannins are ripe and focussed.

Professional Reviews

95/100
Wine Companion
Delicious wine; supple and luxuriant blackcurrant, cassis and quality oak all intermingle, the oak perfectly controlled, the tannins fine and long. Barossa Valley Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2005



91/100
Wine Spectator
Smoky and meaty, with a rich core of blueberry, plum and floral flavors. High-intensity, spreading beautifully on the velvety finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jun 15 2005



16.5/20
Jancis Robinson
Very rich, broad, flattering nose with the rigour of Cabernet and then extremely sweet start to the palate and rather pronounced acidity and focus. A little spiky as opposed to mellow. Quite a different style from the all-Shiraz wines. Perceptible heat on the finish. This one should run and run and I'm sure will develop a strong following.
JR, Jancis Robinson Issue: Nov 2005

The Wine Advocate
This nearly perfect wine, made from 70% Shiraz (105- to 115-year-old vines) and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon (60- to 90-year-old vines), was cropped at a minuscule .5 to 1 ton of fruit per acre, and spent 15 months in French oak prior to bottling. Its gorgeously sweet, pure nose of crushed rocks, blueberries, cassis, and minerals soars from the glass. Floral-like black and blue fruits, an inky/purple color, and nearly endless depth and persistence on the palate are the stuff of legends. With extraordinary equilibrium, precision, and purity, it represents the apogee of Ben Glaetzer's winemaking talents.
