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.

Winery Description

The Henschke family has been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard on his diverse farming property at Keyneton in 1862. He was one of many Silesians who had fled their homeland in search of religious freedom, and he arrived from Kutschlau in 1841.

Each generation has built upon the foundations of Henschke. The fourth-generation Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines. His greatest legacy was the creation of Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s, shiraz wines from Eden Valley that have captured the red wine world’s imagination.

Today, it is fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue at the helm, passionately upholding the family name and reputation. This highly regarded team has won a multitude of awards that recognise the complementary nature of their roles ^ Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. Henschke boasts a strong portfolio, with a focus on ultra-premium single-vineyard wines. They maintain their exceptional wines from outstanding vineyards by sourcing additional fruit from growers of excellence, from the Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills regions.

The sixth generation, Johann, Justine and Andreas, are all actively involved in helping Stephen and Prue explore new and exciting developments. Among these are organic and biodynamic principles that will enrich the land of their forebears and strengthen a future in winemaking for the generations to come.
