Winemaker Notes

Deep crimson with ruby hues. Attractive aromas of spiced plum, red currant, and blue and blackberry fruits are met with floral nuances of violets and black pepper spice. The round, supple palate is filled with juicy blue and red fruits, spiced plum, liquorice and notes of crushed tarragon, with beautifully textured svelte tannins and a long, peppery finish.

Wine Spectator

Spice, tea and dried herb notes make for an aromatic opening to the core of tight berry, cherry and cranberry relish flavors. Detailed and aromatic through to the end, which shows precision and elegance

COMMENTARY: Made in the traditional way of co-fermenting Viognier and Shiraz, the 2016 Henschke Henry's Seven delivers a plethora of aromas and flavors. TASTING NOTES: This is powerful and dense, yet it stays balanced and delicious. Its endearing aromas and flavors of bold black fruit and thick palate textures linger beautifully complex and stylish. Pair it with a thick-cut of prime rib and enjoy. (Tasted: September 24, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
This vintage of Henry's Seven leads with 66% Shiraz (the rest is made up of Grenache, Mataro and Viognier) although the eucalyptus and tobacco leaf aromas trick you into thinking there must be some Cabernet in here. Green olives, coffee grounds, raisiny plums and currant fruits and a copper penny tang are all present, too, precisely put together like a neatly wrapped present, in Henschke's typically poised and polished style. A silky texture, powdery tannins and a leafy nuance mark the finish. Drink now–2027.

The Barossa Zone encompasses the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Some of the oldest vines in Australia can be found here.

Barossa Valley of course is the most important and famous wine growing region in all of Australia where 140+ year-old, dry-farmed Shiraz vines still produce inky, purple and dense juice for some of Australia's best wines.

In the cooler, wetter Eden Valley sub-region, the Hill of Grace vineyard is home to famous Shiraz vines from the 1800s but the region produces also some of Australia’s very best and age-worthy Rieslings.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
