Very dark crimson in colour. Lifted aromas of red fruits, Satsuma plum and blackberry harmonise with hints of bay leaf, sage, rosemary and clove, while savoury complexities and cedar notes lift and add definition. A complex and elegantly structured wine with concentrated flavours of blackberry, spiced plum and wild red berries is layered with nuances of crushed rosemary, bay leaf and black pepper. A seductive mid-palate of great depth and rolling velvety tannins lead to a deliciously long, plush finish.

The inaugural release of The Wheelwright commemorates 150 years of family winemaking and pays tribute to the ‘founding father’ of Henschke, Johann Christian Henschke. He was the first generation of the early Barossa German pioneers of South Australia, a winemaker who established the family winery in 1868. Johann Christian arrived as a skilled stonemason and wheelwright and planted his first vineyards in the high country of the picturesque Eden Valley. This wine is produced from Old-Vine shiraz planted in 1968, a century later, by fourth-generation Cyril Henschke. Decanting is recommended before serving.
