Expert Reviews

Light straw-green; has that hallmark Meyer lemon and lime fruit of Eden Valley at its best; a lovely wine with an amicable, rounded mid-palate before the desired acidity appears on the finish. Rating 93 - Drink by 2019 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2013)

Where to start? It's racy and zesty, like good young riesling should be. The bouquet is like freshly picked flowers - all very appealing - and takes you to a fine boned wine of lime and citrus, with talc and mineral complexity. It's tight and sinewy, but has vitality and energy. Rick Allen, Manly Daily (NOV/2013)

….. Designed as an (relatively) early drinking representation of region, variety and season. It’s terribly difficult to describe this wine without using the word ‘delicious’. It’s so tangy and tasty and textural – and refreshing. You just want to hook straight in. Delicate lime and various florals and spice. Talc, too. Elegance plus. Tremendous drinking.Wine Front (NOV/2013)

There is a distinctive pebbly mineral character in this wine which brings a compelling complexity into the mix. The palate is long and intense with a slaty finish. A trace of citrus and floral character adds further to an excellent wine with a strong regional signature. Ray Jordan, West Australian (FEB/2014)

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.
