Maria and Johann Christian Hahn arrived in the Barossa Valley in 1845. Remarkably this land holding is still in Hahn family hands, six generations on. The history does not stop there as the current custodians, Jacqui and James Hahn still live in the original homestead constructed from 1846 to 1848. The partnership of Rolf Binder/Veritas wines and the Hahn family is to recognize the heritage status of this family, the ancient vines and their unique part of the Barossa Valley’s history.
The Hahn’s tend the vines and the crop and the two consult each other to set cropping levels through to the time of harvest. Crops are low but do vary from 1.5 to 3 tonnes per acre depending on the vintage and how the vines themselves deliver the crop. Rolf normally asks for two pickings about five days apart as he believes this gives a greater range of complexity in the final wines. They skip vintages that are deemed not good enough.

'Aromas of prune, kirsch and jammy blueberry leaves space for a touch of liquorice and dried lavender that gives elegance,' said an inspired Marco Adreani of The Pass at South Lodge.
