Description

A particulary fine red made by Rolf Binder. Drinks well on its own now but is best washed down with a drop of food.

An “Alco-Stelzer” if you will, but not fizzy….

Additional information

production

This fruit is from a combination of Binder Estate vineyards in various
sub regions of the Barossa Valley, as well as a small percentage of
cooler climate fruit sourced from a grower in Eden Valley. Once
picked, the grape parcels are fermented in open fermenters with use
of heading down boards for optimal extraction for 7 days. The wine
is then pumped into French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels
to mature for 10 months before final blending and bottling.

about the producer

The Hahn family were among the original pioneers to the Barossa
Valley, and began growing grapes in 1845. In 1997 a partnership was
formed between 6th generation family custodians (James & Jackie
Hahn) and Barossa winemaker, Rolf Binder, to produce the JJ Hahn
range of wines. The range now encompasses small volumes of red
wines, intended to be extremely good value and enjoyable to drink.
Wines are now crafted using fruit from a unique and expressive ‘old
vine’ vineyard in various sub regions of the Barossa, owned, managed
and worked solely by the Binder family
