JJ Hahn is a joint venture between sixth generation Hahn custodians, James and Jacqui Hahn, and the highly regarded Rolf Binder who is responsible for all winemaking duties.
This Homestead Cabernet Sauvignon from JJ Hahn has been a long time favourite of ours and the 2018 vintage is again in fine form. This offers up typically full-bodied Barossa characters of dark berries, bitter chocolate, mulberry, plum pudding and sweet spice. A Barossa red of enormous appeal, this once again highlights how good Barossa Cabernet can be when in the right hands.
Remarkably this land holding is still in Hahn family hands, six generations on. The history does not stop there as the current custodians, Jacqui and James Hahn still live in the original homestead constructed from 1846 to 1848. The partnership of Rolf Binder/Veritas wines and the Hahn family is to recognize the heritage status of this family, the ancient vines and their unique part of the Barossa Valley’s history.
The Hahn’s tend the vines and the crop and the two consult each other to set cropping levels through to the time of harvest. Crops are low but do vary from 1.5 to 3 tonnes per acre depending on the vintage and how the vines themselves deliver the crop. Rolf normally asks for two pickings about five days apart as he believes this gives a greater range of complexity in the final wines. They skip vintages that are not good enough.
