Shiraz Barossa South Australia
A rare and exclusive regional flagship, by one of the most peer respected winemakers in all Barossa Valley. Hanisch is nothing short of spectacular, harvested off the same rows of superior vine each year, its precious ferment of ten or so barrels, yielding just 250 dozen bottles of vintage. The superlative site was acquired from Punch Hanisch and added to Veritas Vineyard in 1968. The parcel was planted to vines by Binder father and son in 1972. By the mid 1980s, it was recognized that a small block of several long rows made an incredible Shiraz wine.

Deep cherry black in colour. Dulcetly fragrant, delicately perfumed, enchanting aromas of tradewind, textiles and old spice, meaty savouryness, the tang of dark cherries and ripeness of plum. Complex flavours unravel, a deeply layered, seductive, solidly structured, full bodied Shiraz, seamlessly framed by stealthy tannins and a cosset of suave new oak. A mouthcoating finish as Hanisch lingers on a length of concentration, opulence and finesse.
