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 magic combination of a cascade of black and red fruit flavours with supreme elegance and balance, the complex blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc at once fused yet synergistic. The best Euphonium yet. Screwcap. Drink to: 2035; Price: $50.00; Alcohol: 14% Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Deep, rich red colour with traces of purple. The bouquet is complex and mellow with rich earth, roasted nut and spice aromas coupled with traces of cassis/blackberry from the cabernet. A hint of tomato stalk, too. The palate has good flesh and density, concentration and a clean, long finish. The price keeps inching up, but this is a top vintage for this wine. Huon Hooke
