Tasting Notes:
rated: October 19, 2005 , Robert Parker
97 points "One of Australia’s flagship wines, the 2003 Shiraz Hanisch is produced from a warmer vineyard planted in sandy/gravelly/loamy soils. Aged in 30% new French oak, 40% new American oak, and the rest old American wood, it is a full-bodied, classic South Australian Shiraz. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of crushed rocks, blueberries, blackberries, camphor, acacia flowers, pepper, spice, and toasty oak. Dense, chewy, full-bodied, and muscular as well as incredibly pure and elegant for a wine of such size and majesty, it should be approachable in 1-2 years, and age effortlessly for two decades. Very impressive. Note: These wines were formerly sold under the Veritas name, but because of trademark problems, Rolf Binder is in the process of changing his wines’ labels. In addition, the Veritas Pressings is now called Hubris, the Christa Rolf Shiraz/Grenache is now Halliwell, and the Crista Rolf Shiraz is now the Hales Shiraz. From one of Australia’s finest winemakers, this wine stood out brilliantly for its precision, richness, complexity, and ageworthiness. In addition, some very good bargains are available from this talented producer." Best 2006-2025
