Vinoble is proud to list Henschke Hong Kong, Of Australia’s twenty one most acclaimed wines in the Langtons Classification, just the names of Henschke and Penfolds feature more than once in the esteemed ‘Exceptional’ group. Both historic reds of course are from Eden Valley vineyards, distinguishing Henschke from the South Australian Shiraz mainstream in its unique blend of century-old vines, higher altitude and a climate that’s cooler compared to the wider and hotter Barossa Valley. Yet while Henschke is interchangeable with Eden Valley, the family hasn't kept all its eggs in one basket. The comparatively cool Adelaide Hills to the south west is a source of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. In addition, it makes dry whites from Semillon, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and other varieties that go into the Tilly’s Winery white blend. The Barossa Valley, to the northwest of Eden Valley, also plays an important part in its more full bodied Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre blends and Shiraz. The fifth generation winemaker and viticulturist couple of Stephen and Prue Henschke have been tireless in their own promotion of their sustainable vineyard practices and the Henschke brand. Of late it has been the turn of one of their sons, Geisenheim trained Johann, to showcase their new releases to the world. During an engaging and thoughtful recent tasting, Johann stressed the need for getting to grips with climate change and, with it, the search for suitable terroir for their future wines.
