Veritas Hanish Shiraz 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Shiraz Hanisch Vineyard’s perfume is reminiscent of some of the great Diamond Creek Cabernets of the mid and late-seventies. Scorched earth, creme de cassis, blackberry, licorice, and smoky aromas emerge from this dense purple-colored Shiraz. Opulent, rich, and full-bodied, with more forward fruit than the Heysen cuvee

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
