Winemaker's Notes:

Bright straw with a green hue. Sweet, fragrant aromas of pear and grapefruit with underlying notes of toasted cashew and clove. A rich, layered palate of minerals and creamy cashew nuts, clove spice and pear skin add to the fine, long, citrus/stone-fruit palate.
My Notes:

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.
