Winemaker's Notes:

Dark garnet red with violet hues. Intense aromas of blackberry, ripe mulberry and spiced satsuma plum with a hint of cassis. The palate is rich and complex with juicy ripe plum and red currant fruits while the savory, fine, layered tannins provide a long and velvety finish.

Blend: 62% Shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc

About Henschke:

The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in Eden Valley in 1862. Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines, including the world-famous Shiraz wines, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s. Fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue are one of the most lauded winemaking teams in the world, and international awards recognize the complementary nature of their roles, Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. To protect their vineyards for future generations they have implemented an inspiring nursery program to preserve the genetic heritage of their oldest pre-phylloxera vines as well as continuing to lead the way with organic and biodynamic principals to enrich their land.
