£115.00

100 points, “Deep crimson. Fragrant pure blackcurrant, mulberry aromas with roasted almond, herb garden sage star anise notes. Sinuous and gorgeously balanced with superb pure blackcurrant fruits, fine-grained perfectly ripe tannins and underlying roasted almond, roasted walnut oak notes. Finishes al dente firm with superb mineral length. Elegantly styled, perfectly balanced and beautifully pure fruited with animated textures and linear freshness. A reference Australian Cabernet Sauvignon with superb regional voice and modulated power. An extraordinary and potentially long-lasting wine.” – Andrew Caillard MW

97 points, “Deep but brightly coloured, this is a no holds barred, full-bodied Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that will live for decades, blessed by a screwcap. Blackcurrant fruit, touches of cedary oak, black olive, bay leaf and earthy tannins are all on parade.” – James Halliday’s Wine Companion

A one-of-a-kind Cabernet Sauvignon from the biodynamic Henschke Eden Valley vineyard, named after Cyril Henschke, one of Australia’s greatest winemakers. Brimming with cassis, blackberry, black cherry, redcurrant, dried herbs, cigar box and mossy forest notes. This rich and silky delight will provide joy for a well over a decade. Pair with the finest steak, anything with a touch of a barbeque sauce on it, or roasted sweetheart cabbage in a smoky tomato sauce.

The Henschke family have been making wine in Australia’s Eden Valley since 1868. From the biodynamically farmed Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone vineyards, Stephen and Prue Henschke create two of Australia’s most sought-after wines. The vines used to make their masterpiece, Hill of Grace, were planted in 1860, and the wine itself is one of the very best in the world.
