Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010, Nick Stock (Australia, New Zealand), 01 Dec 09

Vintage: 2009

91 Points

"This split region white blend shows some grassy nuances and fresh-cut herbs on the nose; a flash of flint, blackcurrant and citrus too. The palate is smartly cut into shape, showing crisp citrus and just-ripe tropical flavours. Finishes dry and bright."

Courier Mail, Ken Gargett (Australia), 17 Oct 09

"Seamless Adelaide Hills/Eden valley blend with creamy texture, hints of limes and minerals, apple-like acidity."

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.
