Since 1980, the Hahn family has cultivated their hillside vineyards in Monterey County. Today, Hanh wines represent the family’s commitment to craft, rich, supple wines which over deliver on quality yet are perfect for everyday enjoyment.
Hahn recently released three types of wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Grenache/Syrah/Mourvèdre (GSM).
Hahn’s Chardonnay grapes were grown primarily in our St. Nicolas Vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation on Monterey County. This vineyard’s eastern facing slopes catch the morning sun in this cool-climate appellation. The unique soil combination of Lockwood Loam and Rincon Clay Loam is well-drained and rocky, challenging the vines to yield grapes depth, character, and intensity. The extended growing season ripens the Chardonnay perfectly, creating well-balanced, flavorful wines.
Tropical aromas of banana, lemongrass, citrus and orange zest. Bright acidity with viscous, luscious mouth-feel contributes to the wine’s clean finish.
Hahn Chardonnay wine can be paired with bay scallop chowder, fruited curry chicken salad, and marinated shrimp.
Pinot Noir
The grapes for Pinot Noir were grown in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia mountain range. Cool winds from Monterey Bay ensure gradual ripening and development of vibrant flavors. The rocky soils allow excellent drainage, enhancing intensity and promoting balanced ripeness and acidity.
Hahn Pinot Noir’s bouquet charms with scents of bright cherry, red fruit, and cedar with slightly toasty notes. On the palate, round soft tannins with a mouth full of cherry flavors, finishing with mellow acidity. Moreover, this wine can be perfectly paired with rare fillet steak and carpaccio, grilled lobster, brie, and milder blue cheese.
Inspired by the Rhône blends of Southern France, our GSM combines the character of each component into rich layers of flavors and textures. Bright, fruity Grenache grown in Arroyo Seco contributes raspberry, strawberry and cherry flavors, while Syrah from the Santa Lucia Highlands lends color, tannins and hints of blueberry and black pepper. A small amount of Mourvèdre contributes richness to the mid-palate and lengthens the dry finish.
Enticing aromas of strawberry, black cherry, white pepper and cinnamon. On the palate, notes of raspberry, a hint of cinnamon spice, along with strawberry and black cherry. Finishing with a smooth and luscious mouth feel.
Hahn’s GSM can be paired with BBQ beef, Italian sausage with sweet and sour peppers, grilled mushrooms, aged or hard cheese.
