"Released to mark Henschkes 140th anniversary, this is one seriously effervescent sparkler (in the glass, it bubbles like a brook) that everyone can celebrate with. Creamy, mouth filling and underpinned by baskets of fresh, red berry fruit, this is stacks of fun to drink and a cracking sparkling debut from the Barossan legends. " Scoop, Max Veenhuyzen (Australia), December 2008
It includes material which has spent more than 10 years on lees and is full of raspberry and cherry notes, toast, spice and a hint of wax. It’s mouthfilling yet supple and subtle – a wonderful debut. Gourmet Traveller WINE, Ken Gargett (Australia), December 2008
Winery Tasting Notes
Vivid pale gold with green hues.
Complex nose is sweet and creamy, exhibiting lemon, stone-fruit and potpourri with nutty, toasty, yeast autolysis aromas; exotic with crème caramel hints.
A complex, full, rich and creamy palate with layers of spicy strawberry/raspberry flavours; excellent intensity and great acidity carries through to a zesty finish. Excellent bead.
