The Julius Hafner Winery is located in the quaint town of Moenchhof, approx. 50 km (35 miles) from Vienna on the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl, Austria's oldest wine growing community. The Pannonian climate has hot summerdays and warm mild days in late fall, which combines with the influence of lake Neusiedl, causing ideal conditions for the production of superior high-quality wines. We cultivate our vineyards according to the organic rules of the "Controlled and Integrated Viniculture" (KIP), wherby conscious reduction in grop yield, maintainance of the ground-balance reserves and a late harvest, ensures the optimum grape quality. We supervise sub-contractors and have contracts with several vintners to prove quality as well as the possibility of delivering larger quantities! Hafner wines are characterised by a regional "style" at an international quality level, careful attention being paid to the right balance between fruit and body and the use of wood in stroing the wine.

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More

  • Queen Esther Shiraz/Syrah Kosher 2003


    Opens with a light earthy nose. This is a lean, acidic and clean syrah - totally unlike the standard new world stuff, and also very different from French syrah. Red cherries and leather with some licorice dominate - its got a very tart finish and is quite earthy. Far too lean and acidic for me. Read More

  • Well I have plans to include several Syrahs in this thread over the next 2 weeks but let me begin with one of my favorite Syrah producers. J L Chave and his lovely 1996 Hermitage:Richly aromatic from the moment this is opened offering up an array of gamy tones to the earthy, blackberry fruit. Integrated in the mouth with the acidity seemingly qu... Read More
