Deep ruby. Port-like aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, dark chocolate, cigar box, leather, minerals, cedar and herbs; became fresher and more perfumed with aeration. Powerful and penetrating; the thick, extremely concentrated fruit seems as deep as it is wide. From vines reportedly 130 years of age! Finishes with explosive fruit that coats the entire palate. Perhaps the longest Australian wine I've tasted this year. Can be tasted now, but really should be cellared for eight or ten years.

About This Producer


The heritage of Henschke spans 5 generations and 130 years. It is one of the longest and most well-established names in the Barossa Valley, with fifth generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue continuing the exceptional tradition of producing quality wines. Close ties to the vineyards and land, as well as minimal intervention in the cellar, are what make the wines consistent winners among critics and consumers alike. While well-known for the "Hill of Grace" bottling, Henschke also produces a variety of other Shiraz and white varieties, almost entirely under screw cap. These wines promote the unique character of the Eden Valley region of the Barossa Range, which is a honeycomb of site climates with its river valleys and undulating hills. The wines are ready to enjoy upon release, but have such a beautiful balance of fruit, structure and acidity that they are worthy candidates for cellaring.
