Henschke

About Henschke

Founded over 150 years ago by Johann Christian Henschke, this legendary estate has passed down through several generations in an unbroken line of dedicated and talented Henschke vignerons. Today, Stephen Henschke is masterfully shepherding his ancestorial property to continued heights through the range of stunning cuvées from amongst the best vineyards in Australia.

 

One of the definitive names in the vinous world, Henschke is a legendary Australian producer who is locked in a perpetual championship bout against Penfolds for the title of “Australia’s finest wine producer”.

 

Viniculture

Whilst its formidable rival Penfolds has mastered the art of blending Australia’s exquisite terroir, Henschke has followed a more Burgundian path. Now headed by Stephen and his wife Prue, the fifth generation in the family, the family estate boasts a long history of over 140 years. Prue's viticultural management has revitalised production on their old vines and they are now regarded as one of the top producers in Australia with their wines becoming highly collectable.

 

Maintaining a focus on the blending of varietals, this mythical estate crafts breath-taking expressions of single-vineyards conveying an unrivalled sense of time and place. Few producers across the globe could hope to match not only the excellence of Henschke’s offerings, but their faultless consistency also – there is barely a bottle of Henschke ever made that one would not consider being at the very highest level.

Henschke Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (6x75cl)

Halliday Wine Companion (97)

Some of the vines were planted by Cyril Henschke in the ‘60s. Matured in French hogsheads (35% new) for 18 months. Deep but brightly coloured, this is a no holds barred, full-bodied Eden Valley cabernet sauvignon that will live for decades, blessed by a screwcap. Blackcurrant fruit, touches of cedary oak, black olive, bay leaf and earthy tannins are all on parade.

Henschke Keyneton Euphonium 2016 (6x75cl)

Halliday Wine Companion (95)

Matured in French and American hogsheads (18% new) for 18 months. The bouquet does indeed bellow from the glass like that a euphonium. It has a swag of red, black and purple fruits all in tune, something very different for drinking now.

Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2015 (6x75cl)

The Real Review (98)

Deepish red colour with just a trace of purple in its rim, the bouquet is pungent raspberry, squashed overripe raspberry, classic Mt Edelstone. The wine is succulently fruit-sweet: gorgeously extravagant fruit floods the palate. It's almost jammy, the fine but persistent tannins just pulling it together on the finish so the aftertaste and follow-through are clean and balanced and refreshing. Lush fruit flavour, astonishing texture, very old-viney, a very impressive Edelstone. A stand-out vintage for this wine.

Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2016 (6x75cl)

Decanter (97)

Powerful but unobtrusive tannins – like an engine purring – support dark, perfectly ripe blackberry, mulberry and plum fruit, with hints of strawberry, red fruit leather and smoked charcuterie notes from the oak. Spice and dried herb nuances unfurl over three days, beautifully articulating the terroir and its 104-year-old vines through notes of black pepper, sage, tea tree, star anise, mint and cardamom. Ripe and refreshing redcurrant sustains the sweet, spiced fruit through the long, sinuous finish. Terrific purity, poise and panache. Released at £137.
