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's 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.

Henschke Hill of Roses Shiraz 2015 (3x75cl)

James Suckling (97)

Such a luxuriant, elegant and complex young wine, this is the younger-vine material from Hill of Grace Vineyard (27-year-old vines in 2015). Multidimensional with brown spices, such as cloves and allspice, dried sage, orange peel, red berries, camphor wood and roses. A succulent palate with elegance and focus, offering blue plums and a very fine core of tannin to support such intense, vibrant fruit. Light, espresso-washed chocolate flavors lie across the fine, long and polished tannins that shape the fresh, balanced finish. A great wine that shows the DNA of the Hill of Grace terroir in a humbler mode. Beautiful now, but this will age for more than two decades. Glass-stopper closure.

Henschke Keyneton Euphonium 2015 (6x75cl)

James Halliday (95)

A blend of 66% shiraz, 19% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 5% cabernet franc matured in French hogsheads (20% new) for 18 months, the grapes picked over 2 months. It's a fragrant, elegant wine, the fruit flavours akin to piano keys, a fine web of tannins and oak completing the picture.

Halliday's 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.
