    Ruby-red. Complex, thoroughly ripe nose combines black raspberry, minerals, grilled meat, leather, dark chocolate and enticing oak scents. Suave, delineated flavors of berries, game, leather and smoke. Pliant and textured. A repeating mineral component contributes to the wine impression of solid structure. Tannins are covered by fruit on the persistent aftertaste.

    This lithe, supple style shows off plenty of pretty plum, berry and vanilla flavors, which pick up floral and spicy notes as the finish firms up. Feels youthful and definitely wants cellaring. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

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.
