Henschke Henrys Seven Shiraz Grenache Viognier 2014
The shiraz, grenache, viognier, mataro blend is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry’s death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her temperance convictions by closing the winery and uprooting all the winegrapes. This blend highlights the historical introduction of southern French and Spanish varieties to South Australia in those early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of the Barossa.
Deep garnet with purple hues. Appealing aromas of raspberry, plum, blackberry and red currant fruits are lifted by fragrant floral notes and supported by savoury nuances of rosemary, sage, pepper and anise. The palate bursts with sweet, rich, juicy fruits together with plush textures and fine velvety tannins. 60% shiraz, 26% grenache, 7% mataro and 7% viognier and grapes grown in the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley).Henschke Henrys Seven Shiraz Grenache Viognier 2014
