Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Shiraz Hanisch has a pretty Provence-herbs and baking-spice perfumed nose over a core of kirsch, red currant jelly and mulberries plus a touch of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, there's a lovely elegance and freshness to the multilayered palate with ripe, rounded tannins in the background and providing interest to the long finish.
About This Wine
The Hanisch Shiraz is the flagship wine from Rolf Binder. Comprising 100% Shiraz grown in the Veritas Estate 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.
