JJ Hahn Homestead Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
JJ Hahn is a joint venture between sixth generation Hahn custodians, James and Jacqui Hahn, and the highly regarded Rolf Binder who is responsible for all winemaking duties.

This Homestead Cabernet Sauvignon from JJ Hahn has been a long time favourite of ours and the 2018 vintage is again in fine form. This offers up typically full-bodied Barossa characters of dark berries, bitter chocolate, mulberry, plum pudding and sweet spice. A Barossa red of enormous appeal, this once again highlights how good Barossa Cabernet can be when in the right hands.

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.

Displays distinctive, full-bodied Barossa characters of mulberry, dark melted chocolate, prune juice, plum pudding and baked cherry stones, with edges of mint and herb which complement the savoury, tight knit French oak background. Barossa Cabernet made in the right hands is as unique as its famous partner, Barossa Shiraz.
