Rolf Binder Wines Hanisch Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
While sitting at the big and of the Barossa spectrum, doesnÕt overstep on ripeness, and demands time to fully integrate; the bouquet has a prominent splash of toasty oak sitting atop abundant black fruits, bitter chocolate and violets; the full-bodied palate is expressive, thickly textured, and long and unevolved with the oak once again coming to the fore on the finish.

Campbell Mattinson (2005 Vintage) says
This is the top-of-the-line wine from Rolf Binder, matured in 100 per cent new oak, about eighty per cent of it American. The vines that produce this wine were planted in 1972; Rolf Binder remembers the day they were planted, and as a boy he used to water them. 2005 RELEASE Great wines soak up the oak they've been matured in - no matter how strong or new they are - taking those flavours and making them their own. This wine has done just that. It's a warm, dense wine, raisiny, blueberried, plummy and cedary, its depth of sweet, spicy flavour impossible to ignore. Its tannins are a gnarly fist through the finish, in need of time to soften. It's quite huge, and quite special. DRINK 2012-2022.

Binder is the insider's Barossa Shiraz. Traditionally made from old vine material the wines regularly wow the critics, with the top-of-the-range Hanisch from the excellent 2004 vintage being one of the best releases to date. Huon Hooke writes of Binder the epitome of the Barossa; they are generous, honest wines packed with flavour and character Robert Parker, in particular, is a fan of the 2004 Hanisch ?It boasts a beautiful blue/purple color, great stuffing, and a fabulous perfume of crushed rocks, smoked meats, blackberries , cassis, and flowers. This thick, opulent, powerful Shiraz needs 4-5 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 20-25 years.
