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 Hill of Grace Shiraz 2016 (3x75cl)

James Suckling (100)

This has a very complex nose, offering so many facets of spices and fragrance with florals and orange peel, as well as crushed stones, ripe black cherries, blackberries and dark cherries, earth, chocolate and more. The intensity and power here is very tightly held and it has a build of such precise tannins, which carry very intense and assertively ripe blackberries, dark cherries, ripe plums and blueberries. So much on offer here. This has a very bold, intense feel. Exceptional vintage. One of their finest. Try from 2028. Screw cap.

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 2008 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

Produced from nearly 100-year-old, dry-grown, ungrafted Shiraz vines, the 2008 Mount Edelstone has a deep garnet-purple and a wonderfully fragrant nose, with notes of roses and lavender over ripe cassis and blackberry, plus hints of sage, allspice and anise. The full bodied palate provides a great concentration of ripe, spicy fruit with crisp acid to give just enough lift and a medium level of velvety tannins, lending support. The finish is long with some earthiness coming through. It’s tempting to drink now though it should be best 2013 to 2022+.

Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2009 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97+)

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Mount Edelstone presents youthful, muted aromas with primary notes of black cherries, creme de cassis and violets highlighted by hints of allspice and fennel seed. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the dense fruit is superbly framed by a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and lively acid. It has lovely poise through the very long finish. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+.

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.
