Expert Reviews

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

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.
