    HAAN CLASSIC SHIRAZ 2015

    A meal without a Haan wine is like a day without sunshine

    PHILOSOPHY

    This wine continues the philosophy of the Hanenhof vineyard of making fine table wines of distinctive varietal character and individual style.

    VITICULTURE

    The fifty year old Semillon vines are grown in sand over deep clay, in the central Barossa floor. The vines are pruned to rod and spur with moving foliage wires to expose the fruit to maximum sunlight.

    WINEMAKING

    These individual varieties were picked at 12°Be' to retain the freshness and crisp natural acidity. Handpicked in the cool of the night to maintain the delicate aromas of these varieties. Whilst fermented separately, post fermentation they were combined for maximum expression of style.

    TASTING NOTES

    Fresh aromas of ripe passionfruit complemented by hints of lemon and citrus. Clean, crisp acid creates an excellent balance and a fresh, lingering aftertaste.

    AVAILABLE

    In cartons of one dozen 750ml bottles.

    HAAN CLASSIC SHIRAZ CABERNET 2014

    Haan Classic Blend Merlot Cabernet Franc should be drunk on the knees with the head bared

    PHILOSOPHY

    The Haan philosophy was established right at the beginning with Hanenhof Vineyards being managed as a true wine estate Providing the best possible conditions in both vineyard and winery has been the key to success to which must be added the clear understanding of wine excellence. As such then the Haan Wines show distinct varietal Character and classical style. With the passage of time has come the skill to blend Classic varieties to achieve wines that show strength and grace typical of upper echelon wines.

    VITICULTURE

    The Merlot and Cabernet Franc chosen from our vineyard are grown in sandy loam soil on a vertical trellis system with movable foliage wires to expose the fruit to the sun for maximum development of flavour and character.

    WINEMAKING

    Both of these varieties are processed separately and after 8 months in wood the individual barrels are selected for this blend. Merlot and Cabernet Franc are plunged 3 times per day in the fermenters to ensure maximum flavour extraction. The ferment temperature is allowed to rise to 28°C, then reduced to 24°C for complexity. Pressing took place after 7 days. The essence of the Classic Blend range is the abundance of fruit flavours. A softer oak regime is used to enhance the character. The blended wine is matured in oak for 12 months before bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    Aromas of cigar box and cedar spice, mulberry and dark berry fruits. Rich black cherry and velvety plums on the palate. Decant for added enjoyment. Whilst created to enjoy now, this wine has the potential to develop further with more bottle age. We expect it to show well around 4–6 years.

    AVAILABLE

    In cartons of one dozen 750ml bottles.

    HAAN CLASSIC MERLOT CABERNET FRANC 2014

    Here is a wine that cries out to be served with a big rare steak, or pork belly, or lamb rump, for total enjoyment

    PHILOSOPHY

    The Haan philosophy was established right at the beginning with Hanenhof Vineyards being managed as a true wine estate Providing the best possible conditions in both vineyard and winery has been the key to success to which must be added the clear understanding of wine excellence. As such then the Haan Wines show distinct varietal Character and classical style. With the passage of time has come the skill to produce wines that show strength and grace typical of upper echelon wines.

    VITICULTURE

    The grapes for this Cabernet Franc were grown on the Haan Estate vineyard situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley.

    WINEMAKING

    In 2013 these grapes were left to ripen fully and so you can see here a wine of considerable size and flavour. Big, round, soft and very much an individual distinctive style for a Cabernet Franc. Distinctive not just for its size but for all the late vintage plummy characters not usually seen in Cabernet Franc because it is so often picked a lot earlier around 13.5 to 14° Baume.

    TASTING NOTES

    As to the taste, this is quite remarkably well balanced in every way, showing a delightful dry tannin finish over the richness of the fruit. Here is a wine that cries out to be served with a big rare steak, or pork belly, or lamb rump, for total enjoyment.

    HAAN CLASSIC CABERNET FRANC 2013

    Haan Classic Blend Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon should be drunk on the knees with the head bared

    PHILOSOPHY

    The Haan philosophy was established right at the beginning with Hanenhof Vineyards being managed as a true wine estate Providing the best possible conditions in both vineyard and winery has been the key to success to which must be added the clear understanding of wine excellence. As such then the Haan Wines show distinct varietal Character and classical style. With the passage of time has come the skill to blend Classic varieties to achieve wines that show strength and grace typical of upper echelon wines.

    VITICULTURE

    The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon chosen from our vineyard are grown in sandy loam soil on a vertical trellis system with movable foliage wires to expose the fruit to the sun for maximum development of flavour and character. The vines are minimally irrigated and cropped at a level of 2 ½ tonnes per acre (6 tonnes per hectare).

    WINEMAKING

    Both of these varieties are processed separately in open fermenters and plunged 3 times per day to ensure maximum flavour extraction. The ferment temperature is allowed to rise to 28°C, then reduced to 24°C for complexity. Pressing took place after 7 days. These wines were then matured in French and American oak. After 8 months the barrels were selected for this range and combined in tank and refilled back into old oak for a further 3 months to allow for the integration of both varieties. The blended wine was not filtered prior to bottling to maintain the maximum amount of fruit flavours.

    TASTING NOTES

    The classic Australian red blend. A nose of rich berry fruits with a hint of chocolate. The velvety palate shows red berry fruits, pepper and spice from the Shiraz, while the cabernet gives cedar spice and a hint of mint.
