Hanisch Shiraz

$110

Current Vintage: 2012

The Hanisch Shiraz is the flagship wine from Rolf Binder. Comprising 100% Shiraz grown in the Chri-Ro vineyard, the 'Hanisch' is named after the original owner of the vineyard, 'Punch’ Hanisch. This special vineyard was purchased in 1968, planted to vines in 1972 by Rolf and his father. By the mid 1980’s a 1.6 hectare section was recognised for intensely expressive Shiraz of intense aromas, deep colour and flavour. The first Shiraz from this vineyard was bottled in 1988 as the ‘Long Rows’ Shiraz.

A wine where absolutely no compromise is made – in fruit quality, in oak quality, or in viticultural practices. The winemaking remains a testament to this great wine. Barossa is, of course, famous for Shiraz and the Hanisch Shiraz sits amongst the classic wines from this region and has a for many years been rated on Langton's Classification of Australian wines.

Complex flavours abound in this full-bodied wine with firm tannins, and a long lingering finish.
Cork closure. Drink to 2030.

2012 Hanisch Review:
“….A supremely elegant medium-bodied Shiraz that effortlessly stamps its blackberry and plum fruit on the palate, with exactly proportioned gently savoury tannins”.
