Haan Shiraz Barossa Valley Prestige 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

93-95 points Robert Parker: [$46 list] The 2002 Shiraz was aged 18 months in 70% French oak and 30% new American wood. A tiny percentage of Viognier is included, resulting in an uplifted, fragrant, exotic bouquet of acacia flowers intertwined with marmalade, blackberries, and cassis. A superb texture, an opulent, full-bodied palate, beautiful purity, a sense of elegance, and nicely integrated wood, acidity, and tannin are found in this Cote Rotie-styled Shiraz. It is best consumed during its first 7-10 years of life. (Oct 2004)

We travelled the world in search of the ultimate home for us, a place that would fulfil our dream of being makers of very special, unique wine. Many places charmed us -- Cyprus, France, Portugal, Spain, Madeira, New Zealand, Victoria, Tasmania, Margaret River and the Hunter Valley -- but we kept returning to the Barossa Valley, drawn by all it had to offer: 1. A unique district that maintains many of the great traditions lost in other areas. 2. A strong commitment to preserving a great vineyard heritage (where special wine starts!) rather than letting it be taken over by industry or sub-division. 3. A climate with four very distinct seasons. 4. A wonderful sense of community where everyone works together for the common good, taking pride in the achievements of one and all. Upon seeing our 45 acre (18 hectare) vineyard, initially purchased in 1853 by George Friedrich Schmidt for one pound an acre, we knew we had discovered the vineyard and home of our dream. The blend of the old classic Barossa feel and subtle Mediterranean influences in our home is a philosophy carried over to our wines. Read less
