Overview:

The 1914 Shiraz is produced EXCUSIVELY from one of the most significant plantings of genuine aged shiraz vines in the Barossa Valley, located on the Hahn homestead property, between Nuriootpa and Tanunda.
Hermann Hahn planted these wines in 1914 and they are now entering their 87th year (in 2001). Old gnarled trunks restrict yield and berry size and produce unique flavours after struggling for nearly a century in the Australian sun.
Through its limited production of single vineyard wines, JJ Hahn amins to preserve its part of the heritage of the Barossa Valley and allow the produce from this historic vineyard the opportunity to reach its potential.

Winemakers: Rolf Binder & James Hahn 

Tasting Notes:
Opaque black purple colour with deep purple hue. Aroma of violet, ripe plum, dark chocolate followed by a hint of liquorice. The palate is generous, loaded with mouth filling flavours of liquorice, mocha and dark chocolate. Fine grained tannins, with aftertaste of dark chocolate and coffee.

History of JJ Hahn

Johann Christian Hahn and his wife Maria arrived in South Australia in January 1839. They sailed on the ‘Catherina’ from Hamburg, being Lutherans from the area of Posen in what was then Prussia. In 1845, Christian purchased land in the Barossa Valley in the Siegersdorf-Dorrien area, north of Tanunda and the family settled there in 1846.

Early settlers to the Barossa were able to stake out the best of the valley’s farmland and the Hahns also seized the opportunity. They would have operated a mixed farm with the first vines planted on the property in 1914 by Hermann Hahn (3rd generation). By the 1970s, the property was fully planted with vines.

Grape growing became the Hahn family way of life and six generations later, James and Jackie Hahn continued that legacy, living and working on the land originally purchased by Christian Hahn.
