Henschke Henrys Seven 2015
The shiraz, grenache, viognier, mourvèdre blend is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry’s death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her temperance convictions by closing the winery and uprooting all the wine grapes. This blend highlights the historical introduction of southern French and Spanish varieties to South Australia in those early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of the Barossa. Vibrant red with violet hues. Lifted aromas of raspberries, rosehip and plums with hints of kitchen spices and pepper. The palate is lively and complex with red fruits; nicely balanced, a lush texture and chewy tannins.
