Lenswood was acquired in 1981 as the newest inclusion to the Henschke fold. Situated along Coldstore Road at 550 metres above sea level, just fifty kilometres from the ancient Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace vineyards, the sloping aspects offer not only beautiful views towards the older vine country but also higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of the year, cooler temperatures to retain natural acidity, and still enough sunshine to fully ripen the grapes. The Abbotts Prayer label links together the history, winemaking traditions and local folklore of this mountainous region. Matured eighteen months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads prior to assemblage.
Vivid deep crimson in colour. A sweet, spicy, complex nose of blueberries, mulberries, blood plums, cardamom and thyme with underlying hints of toasty French oak. The palate is beautifully svelte and complex with layers of flavour and fine-grained, silky tannins. Very textural, elegant and long.
