Cyril Henschke developed the Henschke reputation for premium riesling wines as early as the 1950s from the vineyard areas of Eden Valley, Keyneton and Springton in the Eden Valley wine region. This region provides ideal ripening conditions for the riesling grape and has a unique track record of exceptional ageing potential for the variety. The Eden Valley riesling vineyard is planted on sandy loam over gravel and bedrock with patches of clay.
The wine is named after ancestor Julius Henschke, a highly acclaimed artist and sculptor.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with green hues.
An intensely fragrant nose punctuated with frangipani, white rose petal and citrus blossom florals, lime zest, mineral notes and a hint of green peppercorn.
The palate shows concentrated pure sweet lime flavours; beautifully balanced with crisp acidity and minerality for a long, focused finish.
Exceptional vintage, 20+ years (from vintage).
