Expert Reviews

... Enter this gorgeous white blend from Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills fruit that is a blast of lemon flavour lifted with just the right dash of passionfruit and tropical headiness. A real taste of summer. "Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser, Tony Love (23/OCT/2010)

When this wine sings, its a sign the vintage year will be strong across the board, says Stephen Henschke, and this is right on pitch with a blast of exciting Eden Valley fruit and lemon flavour with a clever little lift of Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc passionfruit and tropicals underpinned by a delicate minerality. It simply tastes really good." Rating 94 - Adelaide Advertiser, Louise Radman (10/NOV/2010)

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.
