The shiraz, grenache, viognier, mourvèdre blend is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry’s death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her temperance convictions by closing the winery and uprooting all the winegrapes. This blend highlights the historical introduction of southern French and Spanish varieties to South Australia in those early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of the Barossa.

"Henry’s Seven worked because of its silken lushness, due in no small measure to the grenache in the blend, I suspect. Soft tannins, fruit sweetness… these things work with spicy food. "

Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant red with violet hues.
Intense aromas of blackberry, plum and anise are lifted by floral notes, stone-fruits, pepper and crushed spices.
The palate is juicy and rich of ripe plum flavours, with savoury notes and a hint of licorice; fine-grained tannins provide texture and length for a beautifully svelte finish.
Exceptional vintage, 10+ years (from vintage).
