The acclaimed Henschke family, foundation members of Australia’s First Families of Wine, was one of the pioneering families of South Australia when Johann Christian Henschke migrated from Silesia (Germany in 1841). Each generation has contributed to the legend with fourth generation Cyril Henschke pioneering varietal, single-vineyard wines in the 1950s, most famously Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace Shiraz. Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen and his viticulturist wife Prue have won many awards for their talent, innovation and integration of vineyard and winery. They lead the way with environmental, biodynamic and organic principles. Henschke wines are handcrafted and deeply personal, reflecting the unique terroir of vineyards: the wine names tell either a personal story of the family or the cultural history of their region.
A celebration of Eden Valley Riesling, starting with the fragrant, perfumed flowery bouquet, finishing with mouthwatering acidity. In between, lemon, lime and green apple make a flavour mosaic, its patterns never ending, but all in perfect synchrony. Great value. Drink: to 2030; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Bickfords Lime Cordial scents with a touch of floral and sniff of talc, shows some faint yeasty breadiness too. Clean, light, flavoursome, delicate and pure. A dance across the palate of green apple, tangy citrus, mineral water-like minerality. Very chalky, almost too firm finish that hits the palate hot and hard. Has some mojo, but yeah, needs time to mesh and soften that finish. Alcohol : 11.5%; Price : $35; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2016 - 2025+; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
An enticing aromatic pot-pourri nose leads on lemon, lime and tangerine notes on the palate, fresh herbs and bright, focused minerality with crisp, refreshing acidity. History tells us it will cellar for two decades or more. More importantly it is delicious. But you really wouldn't expect anything else from the Henschke family. Winsor Dobbin
