Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue purchased the property in the Adelaide Hills in 1981. At 550m, the Lenswood vineyards offer not only magnificent views over the traditional vine country but also higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of the year, cooler temperatures to retain high natural acidity, and still enough sunshine to fully ripen the grapes. The chardonnay vineyard, which consists of seven clones, has taken its name from Frederick Croft, an orchardist who took up a neighbouring property in 1938.

Expert Reviews

Bright straw-green; a complex but very vibrant chardonnay, with a linear drive through to the finish; pink grapefruit teams with white peach in the cradle created by barrel fermentation in French oak. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes


Gold in colour.


Fragrant aromas of pear, melon and white nectarine are supported by clove and honeysuckle with a subtle hint of cashew.


The rich, complex palate shows concentrated primary flavours of pear skin, melon, stone-fruit and cloves, with a creamy texture and a beautiful line of crisp acidity providing a long and silky finish.

Cellaring Potential

Exceptional vintage, 15+ years (from vintage).

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.
