JJ Hahn Hermann’s Vineyard Shiraz 2017

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%
JJ Hahn is a result of a partnership with popular winemaker Rolf Binder and the Hahn family who have been growing grapes in the Barossa since 1845. JJ Hahn are known for producing consistently high quality reds and great price and this 2016 Hermann’s Vineyard Shiraz is another fine example.

This 2017 JJ Hahn Hermann’s Vineyard Shiraz is a typically full bodied example of Barossa Shiraz, brimming with dark plum, chocolate and licorice flavours, some and vanillin oak adds some complexity and interest. An approachable Shiraz that is designed for early drinking, this offers the superb value we've come to expect from JJ Hahn.

The Hahn’s are as Barossa blue blood as you can get; almost national treasures. Maria and Johann Christian Hahn arrived in the Barossa Valley in 1845. Like all the early Barossa settlers they were of Silesian-German descent. Early settlers also staked out the best of the valleys farm land.

Remarkably this land holding is still in Hahn family hands, six generations on. The history does not stop there as the current custodians, Jacqui and James Hahn still live in the original homestead constructed from 1846 to 1848. The partnership of Rolf Binder/Veritas wines and the Hahn family is to recognize the heritage status of this family, the ancient vines and their unique part of the Barossa Valley’s history.

The Hahn’s tend the vines and the crop and the two consult each other to set cropping levels through to the time of harvest. Crops are low but do vary from 1.5 to 3 tonnes per acre depending on the vintage and how the vines themselves deliver the crop. Rolf normally asks for two pickings about five days apart as he believes this gives a greater range of complexity in the final wines. They skip vintages that are not good enough.
