92 Points A deliciously fruited wine that waltzes away with its alcohol hidden under its skirts; two-thirds Greches, sourced from the Eden and Barossa Valleys. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09
5 Stars This wine was an absolute treat to drink and review. Old, low yielding, dry grown Barossa vines are the key to Johann's appeal. Savoury earth and leather notes lead to a palate of juicy red fruits and spice Wines like this deserve our respect and appreciation. The Henschke family have done more than justice to some very special fruit. Fergus McGhie Canberra Times 21 Jan-09
"It sure tastes good…There’s a whiff of salty, seaweed-like fragrance, but beneath that there’s a world of goodness, with earth and tar and raspberries met by a good punch of cedary, toasty oak. This is a good quality blend of shiraz, Greche and mouvedre." Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010, Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (Australia), May 2009
