The Henschke Tappa Pass Shiraz 2021 vintage is dark crimson with violet hues. Fragrant aromas of ripe plum, black cherry, blueberries, rose petal, anise, mace, with hints of black pepper, cedar, sage and charcuterie. The palate is rich, plush and complex with blue fruits, mulberry, violets and plum, balanced by layers of fine velvety tannins delivering great depth and length.

"Barossa Shiraz in its pomp. This is a shiraz with its eyes on magnificence. It bold, it’s structured, it’s generous and it’s seductive, but savouriness too has been accommodated. Sweet plums, clove notes, woodsmoke, fistfuls of roasted spice, oodles of fruit, whispers of mint, a freshness, a fullness, a persistence. The whole box and dice, served neat, served beautiful."

Winery & Vintage Info

Average winter rainfall was followed by minor frost events in late September and spring rains in early October. Bud-burst was even with good fruitfulness although heat bursts in late November affected fruit set. Strong winds in early December caused some damage to the canopies but the fruit remained disease free. January was mild and dry with a short heat wave late January at veraison, followed by rainfall in early February. The lead up to vintage and conditions during ripening remained cool, cloudy and dry, with the fruit showing balanced acidity, excellent colour and flavour development.

100% shiraz from up to 70 year-old, low-yielding vines grown in the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley regions).

The Barossa has a core of traditional growers of German Silesian descent dating back six generations, staunchly continuing the traditions of their forebears. Up to 70-year-old, low-yielding shiraz is selected from historical grower vineyards at Tappa Pass and Light Pass, growing in low-fertility soils that range from terra rossa to red-brown earths, derived from Neoproterozoic bedrock more than 542 million years old. These vineyards provide exceptional quality shiraz fruit from both the Eden Valley and Barossa Valley regions of the Barossa, vinified in traditional open-top fermenters.

Matured in 14% new and 86% seasoned French oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.
