Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon 

This wine carries the name of Stephen’s father, Cyril Henschke (1924-1979), as a tribute to one of Australia’s outstanding winemaking pioneers, renowned for old-vine single-vineyard and quality varietal table wines. Cyril planted cabernet sauvignon at Henschke’s Eden Valley vineyard in the 1960s.

Description

Deep crimson with red hues. Concentrated and complex aromas of cassis, black and red currants, blackberry leaf and violets with underlying savoury nuances of crushed dried herbs, cigar box, beefstock and anise spice, all supported by dark cedary French oak. A flood of rich blackberry and bright red currants greet the palate, which is precisely defined by purity of acidity, an elegant structure and layers of long, silky fine-grained tannins that provide great persistence.

This is one of Australia’s greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters)…It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own.

Amon-Ra Shiraz

Amon-Ra Shiraz

Amon-Ra Shiraz by Ben Glaetzer from the Barossa Valley. An unfiltered heavyweight shiraz by a great winery.

The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family left Germany on board the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer “Habsburg” and took seven weeks to reach their final destination of Port Adelaide. From here they settled in a country town called Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley where they started their new life in Australia. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley

Amon-Ra Shiraz is an iconic wine that epitomises Ben Glaetzer’s passion to create wines that are full flavoured, multi layered and intense but still elegant, stylish and finely balanced.

In Egyptian mythology, Amon Ra is considered to be the king of all gods. The temple of Amon Ra was believed to be the first temple to ever plant a monoculture vineyard to produce wine for the citizens of the temple.

The eye on front of the label is the all seeing eye of Horus or wedjat (“whole one”) – a powerful Egyptian symbol of protection. It is represented as a figure with six parts, corresponding to what Egyptians regarded as the six senses; touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell and thought.

Ben Glaetzer created Amon-Ra Shiraz to appeal to all these six senses.

The 2013 Amon-Ra Shiraz displays a very deep purple-black color and floral notes of violets and wilted rose petals over mulberries, blueberries, star anise, mocha, fenugreek, cumin seeds, cloves and tree bark plus some toasty oak. Full-bodied and rich yet not overly so, it has refreshingly crisp acid and firm grainy tannins texturing the long spicy finish.

A great wine well worth it’s iconic status.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz – Langmeil’s original vineyard, the Freedom, was planted in 1843 and survives to this day. Planted by the Lutheran forebears who were escaping religious persecution and war in Prussia, just seven years after the state of South Australia was colonised. They came to their new homeland, from Persecution to Freedom, to worship and find peace in our beloved Barossa. The Freedom 1843 is testament to the best of the Barossa, and the determination and independent vision of the Bitter and Lindner families at Langmeil, who have farmed in the district for five generations.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz has the following characteristics.

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes, mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spices.
Palate: Rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spices and lovely, silky tannins. A full-bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and allspice and in combination, flow through to the lengthy, brambly fruit finish.

Freedom is the name of a remarkable patch of vines that have stood the test of time. Today, this vineyard underpins Langmeil’s and the Lindner family’s dedication to old vine preservation and winemaking.
Firmly planted at the heart of the historic winery site, this one-acre patch of gnarly and proud, dry-grown vines is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving shiraz vineyard planted in 1843.
Upon discovering this hidden treasure amongst the once derelict property, the vines were revived and dedicated to pioneer Christian Auricht who had fled his native Prussia for freedom from religious persecution. It was Auricht who settled the original Langmeil trading village in 1842, putting down his own roots in the Barossa soil and creating a home for his family, for generations to come. It is here that Auricht planted the Freedom vineyard as part of his mixed farm.
Predominantly planted on alluvial loam and red clay over limestone and ironstone, each vine’s roots penetrate deeply into the layers of quarry sand and gravel in the underlying water table of Barossa’s North Para River. In optimum vintages, it produces a low yielding crop of just two tonnes per acre.
From this vineyard Langmeil crafts a wine that sits at its pinnacle of winemaking, The Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz.
