Western Ridge 1975 Planting Shiraz 2018, JJ Hahn

£19.95 per bottle

About this wine

JJ Hahn Western Ridge 1975 Planting Shiraz 2018 is aged for 22 months in a mixture of American (65%) and French oak (35%) barrels, then blended to create a full bodied, yet juicy vibrant style. Certainly a style of wine that has made the Barossa region famous worldwide.  The nose contains lifted aromas of vanilla, mocha, dark chocolate and liquorice.  The full-bodied palate is rich with flavours of red berry fruits and plums, with hints of chocolate, mocha, liquorice and vanilla. A refreshing acidity and velvety smooth tannins. Good depth with a long finish. It is complex and intense without being overbearing.

Ageing potential: Drinking well now and can also be aged and enjoyed over 10 years.

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."
