Henschke Keyneton Shiraz Cabernet 2019


What can we say about Henschke that hasn't already been said? Australian's greatest family winery, the greatest producer of Eden Valley wines, entrenched as one of the greatest Adelaide Hills makers and of course the maker and custodian of Australian's greatest wine and vineyard - Hill of Grace Shiraz.

"Henschke is the foremost medium-sized wine producer in Australia. Stephen and Prue Henschke have taken a crown jewel and polished it to an even greater brilliance. In this 2021 edition of the Wine Companion, it has a staggering six wines with 97-99 points, and a further 13 with 95-96 points. Year on year they have quietly added labels for single vineyards, single varieties or blends. Recognition as Winery of the Year is arguably long overdue." Halliday Winery of the Year 2021

"Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Full-weighted, juicy and sweet upon entry, showcasing riffs on boysenberry coulis, blackcurrant, redder fruits, menthol, violet and sage. The flavors rumble along nicely, compressed by a soft nudge of tannin, grape and well-appointed oak, frisky and chalky of feel. This is a delicious wine. Its sassy immediacy belies a structural prowess, auguring for mid-term cellaring." 94pts | Ned Goodwin | jamessuckling.com

Organic & Biodynamic Practices

In June 2021 Henachke was awarded a Robert Parker Wine Advocate Green Emblem, which recognises 24 wineries from around the world that have demonstrated extraordinary efforts in the pursuit of environmentally friendly practices. To qualify for this award, a producer may or may not already be organic and/or biodynamic certified, however needs to be an outstanding proponent of sustainability who looks towards long-term environmental protection and biodiversity.
