Rolf Binder 2010 Hanisch Shiraz

The Hanisch Shiraz is the flagship wine from Rolf Binder. Comprising 100% Shiraz grown in the Veritas Estate 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 and 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 bottled from this vineyard was in 1988, though it was not called Hanisch, but ‘Long Rows’.  The first 'Hanisch' was produced in 1991 and production is always low at only 250 - 500 cases.

The wine is aged partly in new American oak and a smaller amount in new French oak which has been matured in the Barossa Valley for two years before being made into barrels.

The Hanisch has been included in Langton's Classification of the top 101 wines in the country. You need to have produced 10 vintages to be included and we only began making Hanisch in 1991 and did not make a 2000.

The accolades for the Hanisch Shiraz go on and on. A wine where absolutely no compromise is made - in fruit quality, in oak quality, and in viticultural practices. The winemaking remains as always testament to this great wine. Barossa is, of course, famous for Shiraz and Hanisch Shiraz stands out among the classic wines from this region. Complex flavours abound in this full-bodied wine with soft gentle tannins, and a long lingering finish. Given a near perfect score of 99/100 by America's highly respected wine critic, Robert Parker, this wine is ageing in the cellars of some of the most discerning people in Australia and hotly auctioned in the world wine market, the fame of this wine will continue to grow as the years go by.
