JJ Hahn "Reginald" Shiraz Cabernet 2016 ~ Barossa Valley, Australia
James Halliday 5 Star Winery
James Halliday "Good depth to the colour; a robust, full-bodied blend with layers of black fruits and tannins" (2014 Vintage)
The Winemaker "A full-bodied, full-flavoured classic is the promise behind the very deep brick red colour. Notes of tea leaf, cedar, sweet berries, spice, chocolate and cigar box aromas fill the glass. Ripe black forest fruits and spice are balanced by rounded tannins and seamless structure. The palate reflects the nose with flavours of cedar, stewed fruit and cigar box. Fine drying tannins. A pleasant lingering finish with restrained oak notes of mocha and tobacco. A fresh vibrant palate with good depth of flavour and layers of fruit. Very tight wine that is complex but not confusing." (2014 Vintage)
JJ Hahn is a result of a partnership with gun winemaker Rolf Binder and the Hahn family who have been growing grapes in the Barossa since 1845. JJ Hahn's 'Reginald' has become known as a consistently high quality and great value example of the classic Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
This 2016 vintage of JJ Hahn Reginald is a full-flavoured Barossa red wine offering up ripe black forest fruits and mocha flavours, along with some attractive spice, rounded soft tannins and excellent persistent weight on the palate. A complex yet approachable red - this will appeal to the many fans of this outstanding Aussie red.
