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. The wines hail from the Eden Valley (the majority), the Barossa Valley or the Adelaide Hills. There’s a compelling logic and focus – no excursions to McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, etc. There are now four wines from the Hill of Grace Vineyard: the icon itself, Hill of Roses (also shiraz), Hill of Peace (semillon) and Hill of Faith (mataro); the last two are only made in exceptional years. Recognition as Winery of the Year is arguably long overdue. Exports to all major markets.
The Henschke family has been making wine since 1868. Fifth generation, Stephen and his wife Prue are well recognised for high quality wines, innovation and sustainability in the vineyard, as well as their role as custodians of the land. They are passionate in upholding the family name, origins and reputation - ensuing that the vineyards are their legacy for future generations - particularly their children Johann, Justine and Andreas, who are set to be the sixth generations of Henschke in wine.
The Henschkes opened their new cellar door, housed in the original 1860s Grain Barn, in late 2018 to mark the winery’s 150th anniversary. The new cellar door includes a spacious tasting area, courtyard, underground cellar, private tasting room and the Henschke Wine Room, which displays the full Henschke collection. Guests are able taste through the selection of wines on offer for the day, or opt for the paid shiraz or cabernet tasting flight, featuring Mount Edelstone Shiraz and Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon. Tastings of Hill of Grace Shiraz are reserved for the VIP Tour and Tasting.
