There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz.

Henrys Seven is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first seven acres of vineyard at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry's death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her principles of temperance by closing the winery and uprooting all the historic vines.

Johann Christian Henschke purchased land for a farm at Keyneton in 1861 after fleeing religious persecution in Silesia. He planted a small vineyard and an orchard, and after initially making wine for family consumption produced his first commercial vintage in 1868. Each subsequent generation has since built upon the reputation of excellence and distinction. Mostly Shiraz with portions of Grenache, Viognier and Mourvedre, are harvested to varied schedules from good sites in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Shiraz is co-fermented with Viognier, Grenache and Mourvedre are separately handled. Components are treated to ten months in seasoned French oak hogsheads before assemblage.
