Expert Reviews

A lively, tangy, aromatic 40/23/17/14/6% blend of semillon, sauvignon blanc, riesling, pinot gris and chardonnay from the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills, with enough grip on the finish to provide complexity to the fruit drivers. Rating 90 - Drink by 2015 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2013)

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.
