Cyril Hensche planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the Eden Valley during the 1960s and was instrumental in crystalizing the Henschke name as an internationally recognizable luxury brand. Nowadays the vineyard has a permanent sod culture of early maturing perennial rye and cocksfoot grasses in the row. Cyril is a mostly Cabernet Sauvignon wine with smaller components of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grown to the Henschke property on Eden Valley. The precious fruit is treated to a traditional vinification in ancient, open top fermenters, very much in the same way as Cyril Henschke's day. Components are matured in a selection of new French oak hogheads for two years prior to assemblage.

The elegantly layered palate is brimming with black currant fruits, mulberies and bramble, seasoned by lively sage oil characters, underpinned by fine acidity and supported by firmness of structure which adds finesse to the fine grained tannins on the long finish.
