HENSCHKE TAPPA PASS SHIRAZ

Eden Valley | Barossa Valley

Very deep crimson with purple hues. A complex and enticing nose of red plum skin, blueberry coulis and ripe mulberry is beautifully complemented by subtle aromas of sage, tarragon, black pepper, bay leaf, anise and Dutch liquorice. The palate gives layers of sweet mulberry, blueberry and spiced plum, perfectly balanced by acidity and texture, with fine velvety tannins and superb length.

Fully ripe, black shiraz grapes sourced from two grower vineyards in Tappa Pass and Light Pass and vinified in traditional open-top fermenters. Shows extraordinary flavour, purity and acid balance.

David Prestipino, Winestein Uncorked

The Barossa has a core of traditional growers of Lutheran descent dating back five generations, staunchly continuing the traditions of their forebears. Occasionally, one or two parcels of fruit of overwhelming quality come over the weighbridge; this is such an example. Up to 70 year old, low-yielding vines are growing in low-fertility Neoproterozoic soils more than 542 million years old, ranging from terra rossa to red-brown earths. The fully ripe, black shiraz grapes were sourced from two grower vineyards in Tappa Pass and Light Pass, and were vinified in traditional open-top fermenters.
