Formerly Godolphin, due to a trademark issue, Anaperenna retains Godolphin’s symbol while the name has been changed since vintage 2006 .
Anaperenna’s name has been inspired by Anna Parenna, Roman goddess of the new year.
Anna Parenna symbolises the year’s cycle. Her name translates as “enduring year”.
the Romans would ask Anna Parenna to grant them longevity.
one more year for each glass of wine they drank,
retaining Godolphin’s symbol: the Egyptian ankh (pronounced: onk)
which stands for sunrise, regeneration, regrowth and renewal.
The symbol becomes even more appropriate in the case of Godolphin’s rebirth as Anaperenna.
The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties:
Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. An intriguing nose of chocolate, crushed herbs, cedar,blackberries and smoke leads into a tightly-focused palate with fine-grained tannin and incredible density. The finish is fresh and lively with flavours that linger. The sheer quality of the 2006 cabernet components meant that the percentage in the blend has raised to 25% for this release. The cabernet provided compelling aromatics of crushed herbs, fresh black fruits and espresso spice and also contributed intensity of the palate. The shiraz components were from very similar patches of our vineyards as the fruit we use for Amon-Ra, the primary difference being the Anaperenna shiraz needed to be slightly more reserved in expression to enable the purity of the cabernet to be displayed on both the nose and the palate. Potential cellaring of 12-14 years.
