Glaetzer Godolphin Shiraz Cabernet 2005 Barossa Valley

Details:

 

The 2005 Godolphin is a superb follow up to the outstanding 2004. In 2005 vintage conditions were exceptional with the Barossa experiencing one of the mildest growing seasons on record.

The 2005 is a blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from old vine vineyards (between 60-85 years old) located in the Northern Ebenezer region of the Barossa Valley. In the glass it is an opaque black purple colour.  Aromas of blackcurrant, violet, cedar, liquorice and spice jump from the glass. The palate is mouth filling, with excellent length and delivers multi-layers of flavours, superbly married. Blackcurrant, cassis and cedar are overlaid with ripe plum and spicy white pepper. Fine grained tannins are perfectly balance.

This is the last ever vintage of this superb wine under the Godolphin name, which from  2006 was renamed Anaperenna.

95 Points James Halliday.

The 2005 Godolphin, a blend of 80% Shiraz (from 85-year-old vines) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (from 60-year-old vines), was aged in 100% new oak, primarily 300-liter French hogsheads. It represents a beautiful marriage of power and elegance, displaying an inky/blue/purple color as well as notions of black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and sweet pain grille. Ripe, pure, and medium to full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. 93 Points Robert Parker Jr erobertparker.com
