The Domaine
he Henschke family has been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke left Silesia (Germany) and planted his first small vineyard at Keyneton near Eden Valley in 1861. Each generation has contributed to the foundations of Henschke success with Cyril Henschke pioneering varietal and single vineyard wines, including his great legacy Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s, before handing over the reins to the fifth generation, Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue. This couple forms one of the most highly lauded winemaking teams in the world, as joint awards such as ‘International Red Winemaker of the Year’ from the International Wine and Spirits Competition testify. The core focus is on the Eden Valley vineyards, which make up the majority of the label releases, and these are sourced from the legacy of dry grown, established vineyards that the Henschke family have built up and developed over the generations.

Press
"Very deep, dark red-purple colour; the bouquet an explosion of super-ripe blackberry, mocha and violets...powerful, full-bodied and very long on the palate. A big wine, with all components in superb harmony. With a youthful firm texture, it needs time and will be a great Hill of Grace."
Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald, 02 April 2013

Food Pairing
Exceptional wine, exceptional food, pheasant, partridge, hare.
