    Haan Wilhelmus 2013

    A case of Haan Wines can work more miracles than a church full of saints

    PHILOSOPHY

    This wine is based on the old wine saying that "the blend is greater than any of its parts". Using five classic varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot) adds even greater complexity and potential to age superbly. The style and overall character of the wine is of the highest order.

    WINEMAKING

    Each variety is picked at its own distinct maturity so maximising the flavour. Individual French oak selection is tailored for each variety and matured as separate parcels. A detailed blending exercise is undertaken to bring about the desired complexity in the finished, blended wine.

    THE VINEYARD

    The vineyard is located in the middle of the Barossa on deep, sandy loam over red friable clay. The crop level is maintained below 8 tonnes per hectare by a strict pruning regime,

    THE WINE

    Being able to blend with five varieties this wine is contstantly an award wining wine. The aromas are a complex of leafy Cabernet characters blended with plumy fruits and black spices from the Malbec and Petit Verdot. The palate explodes with rich dark fruits and herbal flavours and persists throughout the mid palate where it gathers further weight from the smokey French oak and dusty tannins. The silky finish allows the fruit flavour to continue throughout the palate giving great persistence and length. A classic wine with immense structure and longevity. This wine is aged in selected French oak barriques for 24 months, which imparts a fine grain tannin structure and length. To fully appreciate this wine, we recommend that it be decanted 3 to 4 hours before serving.

    Haan Shiraz Prestige 2013

    From a Haan wine what sudden friendship springs

    PHILOSOPHY

    The Haan philosophy of providing the best possible conditions in both the vineyard and winery has produced yet another wine of distinction and excellence. Shiraz is the king of Barossa reds, and only grapes from the Hanenhof Vineyard have been used in the making of this traditional style.

    THE WINE

    The powerful aromas of spice and berry like fuits combined with the dusty French oak and hints of vanilla produces a very seductive aroma with many layers of complexity. The well rounded and powerful mid palate shows the generosity of this wine, the blackberry fruits and spicy oak combine to give its richness and the firm tight tannin structure allows this wine to be classed as pure Barossa

    AGEING

    Released with 24 months wood and bottle age, this wine will continue to improve over the next 5 to 10 years under good cellaring conditions. It will certainly reward those who are patient, but this classic style will also be enjoyed by those who cannot resist the immediate temptation. To fully appreciate this wine, we recommend that it be decanted 3 to 4 hours before serving.

    Haan Merlot Prestige 2013

    Merlot Prestige 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. Grapes used are only from our Hanenhof Vineyard. The maturation program is balanced with an understanding of the wine style whilst maximising the typicity and definitive potential of the fruit.

    VITICULTURE

    The Merlot vines are 18 years old, grown on a sandy loam with a 2 metre clay base. The vines are trellised on a single wire with two foliage wires to keep the foliage upright and expose the fruit to the maximum amount of sunlight. The fruit was allowed to ripen to 15° baume before picking and cropped at a level of 3.5 tonnes per acre.

    WINEMAKING

    This wine was fermented using a selected yeast to enhance fruit definition and depth. The skins were plunged and pumped over three times per day and the wine allowed to rest on skins for seven days to allow for maximum colour and flavour extraction. After malolactic fermentation the wine was racked into selected French oak barriques and allowed to mature for 24 months before bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    A very powerful wine in both aroma and palate structure. The aroma is characterized by black cherries and ripe plums, layered with aromas of spicy toasted oak, which gives great complexity. This complex aroma is carried over on the palate and further emphasized by the silky oak and fruit tannins. These deep tannins give the wine the length and persistence to be one of the best Merlots produced by Haan Wines since its creation in 1997. To fully appreciate this wine, we recommend that it be decanted 3 to 4 hours before serving.

    AGEING

    While released with quite some readiness, there is no doubt that the Merlot Prestige will develop further with more bottle age. We expect it to show extremely well at around 8 to 10 years of age.
