An opulent accord of the most superior single vineyard Adelaide Hills Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, picked off Stephen and Prue Henschke's exceptional site at Lenswood. This eminently distinguished vineyard was established among the historical homesteads along Coldstore Road by the first settler T N Mitchell in the late 1800s, these prestigious parcels are known to locals as Abbotts Flat. The property yields the most superlative quality Merlot to be found anywhere on the Adelaide Hills.

Lenswood was acquired in 1981 as the newest inclusion to the Henschke fold. Situated along Coldstore Road at 550 metres above sea level, just fifty kilometres from the ancient Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace vineyards, the sloping aspects offer not only beautiful views towards the older vine country but also higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of the year, cooler temperatures to retain natural acidity, and still enough sunshine to fully ripen the grapes. The Abbotts Prayer label links together the history, winemaking traditions and local folklore of this mountainous region. Matured eighteen months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads prior to assemblage.
 
Vivid deep crimson in colour. A sweet, spicy, complex nose of blueberries, mulberries, blood plums, cardamom and thyme with underlying hints of toasty French oak. The palate is beautifully svelte and complex with layers of flavour and fine-grained, silky tannins. Very textural, elegant and long.

This scrumptuous wine is a tribute to the nearby historic Lenswood Coralinga homestead and surrounding apple orchards. The vineyard has a steep north to east facing slope, and the vines here grow vigorously, flowering generously and in general setting healthy crops. At 550 metres, Lenswood enjoys higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of year, cooler temperatures to retain high natural acidity and still enough sunshine to fully ripen grapes. Fermented in tank and bottled post vintage, unaged and unoaked to preserve the wine's superior fruit characters. Lenswood Coralinga captures the exotic aromatic qualities of Sauvignon Blanc grown to an exceptional Adelaide Hills site.
 
Pale yellow green hue. Sweet, delicate floral aromas of passionfruit, gooseberry and tropical fruits are punctuated by notes of fejoa and white currant. The palate is rich and minerally with intense flavours of citrus, gooseberry and tropical fruits, and just a hint of anise and caraway, the finish is clean, crisp and lingering.

Henschke Cyril Cabernet Sauvignon
Eden Valley
Excellent Langtons Classification. Cyril was the fourth generation of Henschke winemakers, a visionary who bottled the original Hill Of Grace and formulated one of the world's great Shiraz. Cyril acquired his Eden Valley vineyard in 1966, establishing a large planting of predominantly Riesling and Shiraz at a time when bonuses were being paid by national brands for the popular varietals. Smaller plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot followed, unfashionable at the time, they have become essential components to the final mix of fruit in Henschke Cyril.

Cyril Hensche planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the Eden Valley during the 1960s and was instrumental in crystalizing the Henschke name as an internationally recognizable luxury brand. Nowadays the vineyard has a permanent sod culture of early maturing perennial rye and cocksfoot grasses in the row. Cyril is a mostly Cabernet Sauvignon wine with smaller components of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grown to the Henschke property on Eden Valley. The precious fruit is treated to a traditional vinification in ancient, open top fermenters, very much in the same way as Cyril Henschke's day. Components are matured in a selection of new French oak hogheads for two years prior to assemblage.
 
Very deep opaque colour, crimson hues. A complex nose of sweet, lifted aromas, red currants and plum, violets and tobacco, cigar box, anise and cedar. The elegantly layered palate is brimming with black currant fruits, mulberies and bramble, seasoned by lively sage oil characters, underpinned by fine acidity and supported by firmness of structure which adds finesse to the fine grained tannins on the long finish.
Henschke Eleanors Cottage Sauvignon Semillon
Adelaide & Eden Valleys
Available by the dozen
Two thirds Semillon grown to Henschke vineyards on Eden Valley, vinified around a solid backbone of topical Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc from the distinguished Henschke property at Lenswood. Named for Eleanor Hill who married George Crossman Thyer in 1848, the grower who pioneered and developed Henschke's original Eden Valley site. Rich, spicy citrus flavours line the palate, crisp acidity, fine length and exquisite balance, take Eleanor out for the freshest fish or lightly spiced Asian faire.

The Henschke Eden Valley vineyard is located at an altitude of 500m and a rainfall of 700mm. Cyril Henschke purchased the property from Kenneth Crossman Thyer in 1966, and established a large planting of riesling at a time when Riesling was scarce and bonuses were being paid by the large wineries. The vineyard is effectively dry grown, although the soil moisture is monitored and in drier years drip irrigation is used to keep the vines physiologically active. The closely husbanded vines are planted to a northerly aspect on well drained deep sandy loam and silts. Eleanor is treated to a brisk vinification and bottled promptly after vintage, young and unoaked, to retain vital fruit character.
 
Vibrant pale straw with lime hues. Lifted, fragrant aromas of citrus, cumquats and kaffir lime with richer notes of ripe stonefruits, custard apple and white currant. Layered and focused, the palate shows generous ripe citrus, green apple and nectarine flavours, with a beautiful line of minerality balanced with fine acidity, leading to a long, crisp finish.

Henschke Henrys Seven
Eden Valley
Available by the dozen
The archetypal Rhonesque fusion of Shiraz and Grenache, Viognier and Mourvedre which dates back to the early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of Barossa Valley. 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.
 
Deep crimson with violet hues. Intense aromas of red and blue fruits, ripe plum and morello cherries are lifted by notes of exotic floral and stonefruit, over mocha and bitter chocolate nuances. The palate shows rich, lush and juicy wild berry and satsuma plum flavours, a hint of anise and kirsch, velvety, fine grained tannins provide texture and length for a beautifully svelte finish.

Exclusively old vine Shiraz from pre phylloxera material imported by early German settlers. One of the most evocative labels in the world of wine, Hill of Grace vineyard is set on a unique part of the Moculta landscape called Parrot Hill, an isolated spot where gentle protected slopes nestle against the rocky Boundary Road ridge to the east. Brought into the Henschke estate in 1951, Hill of Grace experienced an exceptional growing season for vintage 1996, average winter rainfall, a mild spring with excellent flowering, dry and cool for summer. The cool conditions allowed for slow ripening with excellent flavour development. Matured in new French and American hogsheads for eighteen months.
 
Very deep crimson colour. A sweet ripe complex, exotic nose of prunes, plums, blackberries, cedar and chocolate aromas. A rich sweet succulent palate, complex and well structured with excellent concentration and textures, finishing silky smooth on an exquisite length of fine velvety tannins.
Henschke Hill Of Roses Shiraz
Eden Valley
From a small block of younger vines on the illustrious Hill Of Grace Vineyard in Valley Eden. The precious block was planted during the 1990s around the ruins of an ancient post office, on a property name after Gottlieb Rosenzweig rose twig, one of the early Lutheran settlers who established his homestead at nearby Parrot Hill. Matured eighteen months in a high selection of new French oak hogsheads, Hill of Roses is marked by its exceptional finesse, licorice notes, blackberry and cassis, a measure of tittilating five spice on the seemingly endless, creamy tannin finish.

Henschke is one of the longest established family names in the Barossa

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, believed to be principally riesling and shiraz. Each subsequent generation built upon the reputation for quality, but it was fourth-generation Cyril Alfred Henschke who in 1958 created the wine that has most captured the red wine world's imagination - Hill of Grace.

Henschke

The original two-storey cellar, built into the side of the hill in time for the 1868 vintage, has been added to throughout the generations. Now covered with ivy, the stone building retains an old-world charm with its open fermenters and winemaking memorabilia on display. The estate's Mount Edelstone, Hill of Grace, Eden Valley and Lenswood vineyards produce the range of Henschke wines. Managed by viticulturist Prue Henschke, the superlative vineyards bear the fruit of her leading edge research and development. They vary from venerable dry-grown shiraz vineyards to the newer cooler-climate Lenswood vineyards supporting varieties such as pinot noir, chardonnay and merlot.

The beautiful and historical name Mount Edelstone is a translation from the German edelstein, which means gemstone

In 1839 Johann Menge, a German geologist, mineralogist and gardener explored and surveyed the regions around Adelaide in the new free colony of South Australia, on behalf of George Fife Angas and Colonel William Light. He travelled through the Barossa Range, giving names to the rivers and hills, including Mount Edelstein, which with time was anglicised to Mount Edelstone. The 40-acre Eden Valley vineyard, was planted to shiraz, probably sourced from Joseph Gilbert at Pewsey Vale. The original pre-phylloxera material most likely originated from the James Busby selection, which was propagated by Samuel Smith of Yalumba in the 1850s. What is surprising about Mount Edelstone is that it was planted purely as a shiraz vineyard.

Hill of Grace is surely is one of the most evocative phrases in the world of wine. For Henschke it is the name of both the vineyard and the wine that has so captured the heart of the red wine lover. The land was originally granted to Charles Flaxman in 1842 for £1 per acre. It was then sold by George Fife Angas to Nicolaus Stanitzki in 1873, for £480. Paul Gotthard Henschke purchased the vineyard in 1891. After his death his sons and executors Paul Alfred and Julius Philip Henschke arranged the transfer to Julius Philip, who had married into the Stanitzki family. In 1951 the property was purchased by Louis Edmund Henschke, a son of Paul Alfred Henschke, who worked the vineyard and property for nearly 40 years. The family continues to maintain the heritage.

The eight-hectare vineyard on the original 32-hectare block sits at an altitude of 400 metres, and has an average rainfall of 520 millimetres. It is situated on Parrot Hill, an isolated spot that was once an active village. Hill of Grace is planted predominantly to shiraz, but a surprise to many is that it also includes other varieties. Riesling, semillon and mataro/ mourvedre, with the sercial grape now only a distant memory. This diverse planting of several varieties in the garden, as the old Barossan growers called their vineyard, is typical - a sort of hedging their bets against the vagaries of mother nature. The whites are used in Eden Valley varietals, and the mataro...well, that's one of mother nature's later maturing varieties. It has gone into Hill of Grace at times, but usually it just doesn't ripen enough.

The Henschke Eden Valley Estate vineyard is located in the cooler part of the Mount Lofty Ranges, at an altitude of 500 metres and a rainfall of 700 millimetres. Cyril Henschke purchased the property from his son Kenneth Crossman Thyer in 1966, and established a large planting of predominantly riesling and shiraz at a time when riesling was scarce and bonuses were being paid by the large wineries. Today the riesling is the source of the Julius Eden Valley Riesling, named in honour of great-uncle Julius Henschke, a highly acclaimed artist and sculptor, while the shiraz is used in the Keyneton Estate Euphonium blend. This wine is named after the early English pioneer Joseph Keynes who settled at Keyneton in 1842 and after whom the village was named.

What sets Henschke wines apart, is the energy in the glass. There is no wine like Hill of Grace anywhere, and the Henschkes work at the top of their form, to infuse every bottle of each label with the unique energy from their historic vineyards. There are few wines in the world that can surpass Henschke.
