Henschke work at the top of their form, to infuse every bottle with the unique energy of historic Barossa vineyards. The very old, low yielding vines are grown mostly to low fertility Neoproterozoic soils more than a half billion years of age, ranging from red brown earths to Terra rossa. The fully ripe black Shiraz grapes are sourced from grower owned vineyards in the Tappa and Light Passes, earmarked by Henschke and vinified in traditional open top fermenters. Matured in a high proportion of new French oak hogsheads for eighteen months prior to assemblage.
Deep crimson, violet hues. Intense, fragrant aromas of blue and black berry fruits, satsuma plums and ripe mulberries interwoven with creamy cedar, mocha and roast meat nuances, subtle hints of Thai spices and flint. The palate is rich, round and lush, layers of concentrated dark plums and black fruits, an incredible intensity of flavours and beautifully balanced silky tannins for a long, fine, assertive finish.
