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.
55% Semillon, 22% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Pinot Gris, 6% Chardonnay and 5% Riesling
This attractive, aromatic blend is named as a tribute to Stephen’s great-aunt Ottilie Mathilde ‘Tilly’ Henschke, one of the many remarkable pioneering women of the era when daily life saw them work the land, grow their own produce and raise a large family; a far cry from the ease of today.
Pale straw with lime hues. Beautifully perfumed aromas of clover blossom, gooseberry and stone-fruit are complemented by hints of lemon peel, melon and tropical fruits. A textural and balanced palate of citrus and nectarine is supported by subtle nuances of gooseberry and lemon thyme, with crisp acidity for a focused and vibrant finish.
