About this wine

JJ Hahn 1890’s Vineyard Shiraz displays aromas of deep rich mocha, toffee and chocolate are combined with defined but not domineering oak character. The palate is extremely rich and velvety, with tight round complex flavours of herbs, cloves and deep pure silky Shiraz fruit. The tannins are veneered, smooth and soft with lingering persistence.

Harvested from the Riedl Estate in the Barossa subregion of Vine Vale, from vines planted in the 1890s and now classified as ‘Ancient’. These grapes with intense flavour were fermented as a small batch to maximise the attention we could pay to such rare grapes. Undergoing regular pumping over during fermentation and gentle pressing at the end of the fermentation to maximise the retention of flavours. The wine was then matured in 60% new American and 40% older second fill French oak Hogsheads for 18 months prior to bottling.

Ageing potential: Peak drinking 2019-2029.

Alcohol: 14.5% ABV

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
