91-93 Points - Jay S Miller (erobertparker.com)

The 2005 Shiraz 1928 is opaque purple-coloured with an expressive bouquet of cedar, pencil lead, mineral, violets, tar, blueberry, and blackberry. This is followed by a medium-to full-bodied wine with gobs of ripe fruit, spicy black fruit flavors already exhibiting complexity, a harmonious personality, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish.

Producer

JJ Hahn wines have a deep rooted history within the Barossa Valley dating back to 1839 when Johan Christian Hahn and wife Maria arrived in South Australia. They bought some farmland and the first vines were planted in 1914 by Hermann Hahn (3rd generation). Grapes were continually grown within the estate but it wasn’t until 1997 that JJ Hahn wines were born, created by James and Jacqui Hahn and winemaker Rolf Binder. They saw the wines grow from strength to strength however after thirteen years James and Jaqui retired from the business, leaving Rolf who continues to create wines under the JJ Hahn label; admired for their representation of the region and exceptional drinkability and value.

JJ Hahn Wines, Barossa Valley, Australia

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
