Haan Estate Wilhelmus 2018


  • Winestate: 4 Star  –   94 points


The classic saying that “the blend exceeds all of its parts” is never better illustrated than in the Wilhelmus.

By maturing the component wines individually we ensure the “classic quintet” is of the highest order. Matured in French oak barriques, both new and once used.

A deep and generous wine showing great complexity and balance with spicy oak overtones. A true estate wine of superior quality.

Although this wine is ready to drink, carefully cellaring for another 10 years will show its full potential and enhance the blend of varieties.
