2016 Henschke Henrys Seven Barossa
In addition to their estate fruit, Stephen and Prue Henschke also buy grapes from Barossa growers, with whom they’ve been dealing for decades, to make 'Henry’s Seven'. This blend is a tribute to Henry Evans, who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. Deep garnet with violet hues. A striking bouquet of ripe plum, raspberry, blueberry and notes of blackberry intertwine with savoury notes of cracked black pepper, flowering herbs, fresh tarragon and bay leaf. Dark plum, berry compote, rhubarb and raspberry flavours lead to a peppery mid-palate of vibrant red berry acidity and fine-grained tannins, finishing with lingering flavours of mulberry and black pepper.
