Henschke Giles Lenwood

Henschke Giles Lenwood from Adelaide Hills

Ruby crimson with bright ruby hues. Expressive fragrant aromas of ripe forest berries, raspberry, cherry, rhubarb and strawberries and cream, with savoury notes of tarragon, lavender, potpourri and rosehip. Red berry fruits, cherry and rhubarb flavours are supported by a savoury tannin structure arising from some whole bunch fermentation, giving a lovely soft, chalky mouthfeel. This is all carried to a mouth-watering, lingering finish by a fine line of integrated acidity together with subtle oak nuances.

Henschke

“The Henschke family is one of the longest-established wine names in the Barossa. Johann Christian Henschke purchased land for a farm at Keyneton in 1861 and planted a small vineyard and orchard, and produced his first commercial vintage in 1868. His son, Paul Gotthard, continued farming and winemaking and planted more vines to increase wine production. Upon his father’s death in 1914, third-generation Paul Alfred took over the property and as demand for fortified wines grew, winemaking assumed greater significance. Each 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. His first vintage of this Shiraz was produced in 1958.
Today, fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue uphold the family name and reputation, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively. 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.”

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.

Pinot Noir

“The famous grape of Burgundy. The classic style is medium colour, with fragrant berry, violet and gamey-earthy aromas, and soft, full sweet berry flavours, with velvety tannins.
This variety is most suited to a long cool growing season that are found in southern Victoria (noteable Yarra Valley), Adelaide Hills of South Australia, and southern regions of Western Australia.”
