Bordeaux Style - CYRIL HENSCHKE, Henschke. Eden Valley, South Australia

2010 CYRIL HENSCHKE, Henschke. Eden Valley, South Australia

Organic

Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Area: A single vineyard in the Eden Valley (part of the hills known as the Barossa Range) which consists of river valleys and undulating hills covered with large gums, rocky outcrops and Aboriginal sites. It is a high-altitude area of between 400 and 500 metres, compared with the Barossa Valley's elevation of 200 to 300 metres. This makes for cooler nights, later ripening and more retention of freshness and distinctive varietal flavours
Grape Variety: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, matured in new French oak for 18 months
Producer: The Henschke family settled in the Barossa in 1861 and now fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue uphold the family name and reputation, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively. Famous above all for the 'Hill of Grace', this is one of the most respected estates in Australia. All their vineyards are both organic and biodynamic
Cellar Potential: 2009-2017
Old Bridge Rating: Very much a Cabernet from a Shiraz estate - in other words the accent is on ripe, luscious fruit above firmness or 'structure'. A hedonistic style, but not over-the-top; there is lovely freshness and elegance too
