Hahndorf Hill

5 Star Rated Winery – By James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2018

Larry Jacobs and Marc Dobson, both originally from South Africa where Larry established the Mulderbosch
Vineyards in the Stellenbosch and Marc was a journalist and copy writer, own the six hectare vineyard
located at the edge of the historic Hahndorf village in the Adelaide Hills.

They decided to specialise in the Austrian varieties of Gruner Veltliner and Blaufrankisch because of the
abundance of mineral components in the soil, the low January mean temperature and significantly high
diurnal variation. They also grow the more traditional varieties that shine in the Adelaide Hills, namely
Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Pinot Grigio as well as a Rose made from the Germanic grape, Trollinger and
other more traditional varities.

The vineyard is managed biodynamically and the wines made as natural as possible with minimal intervention.

Hahndorf Hill Winery was awarded BEST PRODUCER at the Adelaide Hills Wine Show.
