A tribute to Louis Edmund Henschke (1919-1990), the fourth-generation grower of the Hill of Grace vineyard. His expertise as a vigneron has resulted in a legacy in the form of the famous vineyard being maintained using long-term organic principles. The Semillon is a reserve selection from 50 year-old vines, grown in the Henschke vineyard at Eden Valley.

Gleaming straw-green; an intense, pure, long and focused evocation of Semillon with lemon zest, lemon juice and lemongrass flavours on the bright, crisp and long palate. Will age superbly, however great its appeal right now. Rating 94 – Drink by 2025, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with lime hues.
Aromas of fragrant clover blossom, lemon citrus and green apple are layered with hints of nashi pear, dried fennel and newly mown hay.
The focused palate shows zesty citrus and fresh stone-fruit characters with beautifully balanced fine acidity and texture for a long, crisp finish.
