History:

The story of the Henschke family and their wines has almost as many layers and facets as a great vintage of Mt Edelstone or Hill of Grace Shiraz: this is one producer for whom the descriptor New World seems utterly inappropriate in anything but geographical terms. Its an inescapably involving saga, from Johann Christian Henschkes emigration from German Silesia in 1841 in search of religious freedom, to the planting of two legendary vineyards, Hill of Grace and Mt Edelstone. Fourth generation Cyril Henschke was a pioneer of single varietal planting at a time when Australia was awash with blends and fortifieds but was also continuing a philosophy which began over a century ago with the planting of Mt Edelstone to 100% Shiraz. With the fifth generation winemaker-viticulturist couple of Stephen and Prue famed the world over for their passionate pursuit of education and sustainable

practices, has any aspect of the Henschke saga been left unexplored? If there has, perhaps its the Henschkes activities in the cooler climes of the Adelaide Hills, where they were among the early pioneers of the regions renaissance in the late 1970s. These wines with Giles Pinot Noir a stand-out offer a new perspective on the Henschke winemaking ethos.

Tasting Note:

Deep crimson in colour with a purple hue. Powerful, ripe aromas of blackberry and plum with complexing hints of star anise, ferns, eucalypt and dark chocolate. The palate is an intense and concentrated blend of sweet, juicy plum pudding fruit and structured ripe tannin. With mouthfilling power, seamless texture and lingering finish the wine displays the hallmark

characters of the Mount Edelstone vineyard in one of its greatest years.
