97 Points | Halliday Top 100 Wines 2021
The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Henschke planted his first vineyard in South Australia’s Eden Valley in the early 1860's. Today, fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and viticulturist wife Prue are recognised around the world for their exceptional quality wines, innovation and sustainability practices in their vineyards.
Henschke have taken advantage of exceptional conditions throughout the 2021 vintage to produce a stunning Peggy's Hill Eden Valley Riesling. Offering loads of lemon, lime and white peach aromas, the palate is impressively concentrated with green apple, lemon lime and tangerine notes. Framed by fine minerality, excellent balance and a long finish, this is a top-line Eden Valley Riesling from Henschke.
"97 Points. The blossom-filled bouquet surges instantly from the glass, citrus leading, apple tucked in close behind, the palate every bit as expressive. The crisp acidity provides the framework to carry the long finish and aftertaste; world class for a song. $25. Screwcap. 12% alc. Drink to 2031"- James Halliday, Top 100 Wines 2021.
The acclaimed Henschke family, foundation members of Australia’s First Families of Wine, arrived in South Australia in 1841 after Johann Christian Henschke migrated from Silesia (Germany). Each generation has contributed to the legend with fourth generation Cyril Henschke pioneering varietal, single-vineyard wines in the 1950s, most famously Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace Shiraz.
Fifth Generation winemaker Stephen and his viticulturist wife Prue have won many awards for their talent, innovation and integration of vineyard and winery. They lead the way with biodynamic and organic principles. Henschke wines are hand crafted and deeply personal, reflecting the unique terroir of vineyards: the wine names tell either a personal story of the family or the cultural history of their region.
