Haan Merlot Prestige

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
This is right in the mainstream of Haan style, from the single estate vineyard and two years in French oak. It has soft plummy fruit, with the faintest touch of black olive shading the aftertaste, the tannins soft and plush, the oak framing all within.

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Classic merlot with its complex chocolaty/nectarine bouquet and beautifully layered spicy/peppery/cassis palate with warming alcoholic finish. Excellent cellaring potential. 5+

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Vibrant, fresh and focused cedar, black olive and plum fruit; the palate is fine, with pronounced acidity lending an elegant framework to the slightly spicy fruit

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Has the extra degree of intense varietal fruit and gently opulent oak; has length, and a supple, velvety finish.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
As ever, a skein of tightly knit fruit, oak and tannins with the stamp of the maker (and oak) figuring large. It is a unique style; here sweet merlot fruit is there to be seen if you look for it.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
As usual, shows clear varietal character, with a mix of black olive, plum and tobacco on the bouquet and the medium-bodied palate. The French oak is just a little over the top.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
In Haan style, a fusion between fruit and oak; medium-bodied, long and fluid; clear-cut olive and berry varietal fruit, fine tannins.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Abundant dark fruits on both bouquet and palate; good structure and density, but not as expressively varietal as prior vintages from Haan.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; concentrated and very ripe dark fruit aromas verge on plum pudding. The palate flows on with slightly jammy fruit, then potent tannins. Somewhat atypical for Haan.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Strong red-purple; the bouquet is complex, with a mix of ripe fruit and more savoury/earthy aromas. The palate is crammed with ripe, rich, sweet dark berry and dark chocolate flavours, supported by soft vanilla oak. A wine which is a lovely Australian red style, rather than being strongly varietal.
Australian Wine Companion 2001 2001

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Medium to full red; the bouquet is ripe and clean, with sweet chocolate and blackcurrant aromas, the palate rich and supple, with sweet mid-palate chocolate, mulberry and blackcurrant flavours running through to cedary oak tannins on the finish.
