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.
A blend of Barossa Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Viognier, the 2020 Henschke 'Henry's Seven' is again in cracking form offering lifted aromas of plum, red currant and black berry fruits. The round supple palate is filled with juicy blue and red fruits, spiced plum, liquorice and beautifully textured svelte tannins. A high-quality wine from one of Australia's finest red wine makers, this offers super value Barossa drinking.
"93 Points. I can not remember a better Henry’s Seven and that is a fantastic achievement considering the challenges of the vintage – maybe a little top drawer fruit even snuck in there from some of Henschke’s most famous vineyards. The wine is immediately engaging but also ethereal with white pepper, charcuterie, roasted meats and mulberry aromas. it’s not massively concentrated but that fits its bistro style perfectly. The palate is then fleshy and supple with tarry, liquorice and fruit pastille flavours before a lingering finish. Well pitched as a classy barbecue red. $37. Drink: 2021 - 2027"- Angus Hughson, winepilot.com.
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.
