Description

This wine carries the name of Stephen’s father, fourth generation Henschke winemaker, Cyril Henschke (1924-1979); a tribute to one of Australia’s outstanding winemaking pioneers, who was renowned for old-vine, single-vineyard, and quality varietal table wines. Cyril planted cabernet sauvignon at the Henschke Eden Valley vineyard in the late 1960s. The cabernet sauvignon vines, along with cabernet franc and merlot, are planted on a north facing slope, grown using organic and biodynamic practices. This wine celebrates the incredible beauty that emerges from the vibrant rows of the Eden Valley vineyard, revered for its texture, depth, complexity, and fine-grained tannins.

Smells

Lovely complex aromas of cassis, red currant and mulberry interwoven with anise, oregano, thyme, violets, and tobacco leaf.

Tastes

The palate delivers layers of vibrant and pure black currant and plum, balanced by hints of cedar and vanilla pod. Lively acidity and fine-grained tannins provide a long, defined, mouth-coating finish. This has a long life ahead and the rewards will be endless, given the time. Cellar 20years + and enjoy with your best friend and a superb home cooked dinner.
