A unique district that maintains many of the great traditions lost in other areas.
A strong commitment to preserving a great vineyard heritage (where special wine starts!) rather than letting it be taken over by industry or sub-division.
A climate with four very distinct seasons.
A wonderful sense of community where everyone works together for the common good, taking pride in the achievements of one and all.
Upon seeing our 45 acre (18 hectare) vineyard, initially purchased in 1853 by George Friedrich Schmidt for one pound an acre, we knew we had discovered the vineyard and home of our dream. The blend of the old classic Barossa feel and subtle Mediterranean influences in our home is a philosophy carried over to our wines.
Practices & Techniques
Estate Vineyards / AVA
The Hanenhof Estate also grows some exceptional Merlot, together with a small amount of Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the white varieties Semillon and Viognier are also grown on the estate. All of these varieties have benefited from the excellent attention to detail of the Haan's vineyard manager, Robert Seelander.
In the heart of the Haan style, intense fruit lifted by co-fermented Viognier on both
bouquet and medium-bodied palate: delicious blackberry and plum fruit with soft but
persistent tannins and Frech oak; shows the great ’06 vintage to advantage.

HAAN Classis Merlot Cabernet Franc 2008 ****1/2
The use of only French oak pays dividends with this elegant and seductive light – to
medium bodied wine; red fruits glide along the mouth, the tannins superfine – perhaps a
little too much so.
