This attractive, fragrant blend is named as a tribute to great-aunt Ottilie Mathilde ‘Tilly’ Henschke, one of the many remarkable women of the era where daily life was a far cry from the ease of today.

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 Tasting Notes
Pale straw in colour with lime hues.
Fragrant aromas of perfumed florals, almond and citrus blossoms with lifted nuances of gooseberry, fejoa, white peach and lemon grass.
The palate is soft and rich with a creamy mouthfeel, layers of passsionfruit, lychee and fruit salad flavours and a long, crisp finish.
Exceptional vintage, 10+ years (from vintage).
