Henschke well and truly sits amongst the top wineries in Australia and the family-run operation has six generations of winemaking knowledge to draw from. Their vineyards were some of the first planted in the region and continue to produce some of the finest Australian wines today.
Henry's Seven (named after Henry Evens, the first man to plant grapes at Keyneton) is a sensational introduction to the Henschke range. The 2021 is a blend of shiraz, grenache, mataro and viognier. It's deliciously smooth and supple with ripe tannins and sensational texture. Bright red berry notes are nicely balanced by subtle spice and the finish is long and elegant. Absolutely superb.
The winery writes "Deep ruby with violet hues. Lifted raspberry, red currant, mulberry and Satsuma plum, with floral notes of violets, lavender, crushed flowering herbs and anise, pepper and mace spice. A rich and intense palate of well defined, concentrated red fruits; red currant, cut plum and spicy wild berries, give way to crunchy mid palate, firm-edged velvety tannins and excellent length."
