Expert Reviews

Rating 91 - James Halliday - Wine Companion.11 July 2013

The bright colour has a little more purple than Mount Edelstone, and the bouquet is firmly in a black fruit spectrum, blackberry and a touch of smoked meat/charcuterie; the medium- to full-bodied palate follows on with a complex array of flavours, each demanding to be heard, as do the savoury tannins and oak. Will be very, very, long lived.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Henschke is one of the longest established family names in the Barossa and the Australian wine industry. Johann Christian Henschke first planted vines in Keyneton in 1861, producing his first commercial vintage in 1868.

The tradition of quality winemaking has passed down through the generations – today seeing Stephen Henschke and his wife, Prue, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively.

Awarded "International Red Winemaker of the Year" in 1996 at the London Wine Show, Stephen and Prue were in 2006, awarded Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine's "Winemaker of the Year" in recognition of winemaking excellence in both red and white wines. These Awards recognise the consistent and continuing success of this remarkable couple.

Prue has, for the last 18 years, explored and now employs both organic and biodynamic strategies to maximise the potential for the fruit from these unique vineyards to fully express their individual terroirs.
