Stephen and Prue Henschke, fifth-generation winemakers at Keyneton, selected Lenswood in 1981 to pioneer a new vineyard site. The pinot noir vineyard has been named after Charles
Giles, an early pioneer whose descendants have managed the property as an apple orchard since 1864.

93 Points. Tangy more than savoury entry, then lovely small red berry fruits come through strongly on the fine, lingering finish. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09
93 Points. Henschke is a big red gun, but pinot hardly springs to mind in contemplating its best wines. This little bobby-dazzler may cause a rethink. It’s beautifully fresh and fragrant, with classy, cherry like flavour stretched long by minerally, super fine tannins. Very impressive.

Winery Tasting Notes
Garnet in colour with purple hues.
Lifted aromas of sweet dark cherries, rose hip and rhubarb with undertones of perfumed French oak.
The delicate palate exhibits sour cherry and musk with underlying gunsmoke/granite characters and silky tannins with excellent length.
