The Henschke Eden Valley vineyard is located at an altitude of 500m and a rainfall of 700mm. Cyril Henschke purchased the property from Kenneth Crossman Thyer in 1966, and established a large planting of riesling at a time when Riesling was scarce and bonuses were being paid by the large wineries. The vineyard is effectively dry grown, although the soil moisture is monitored and in drier years drip irrigation is used to keep the vines physiologically active. The closely husbanded vines are planted to a northerly aspect on well drained deep sandy loam and silts. Eleanor is treated to a brisk vinification and bottled promptly after vintage, young and unoaked, to retain vital fruit character.
Vibrant pale straw with lime hues. Lifted, fragrant aromas of citrus, cumquats and kaffir lime with richer notes of ripe stonefruits, custard apple and white currant. Layered and focused, the palate shows generous ripe citrus, green apple and nectarine flavours, with a beautiful line of minerality balanced with fine acidity, leading to a long, crisp finish.
