2016 Henschke Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine carries the name of Stephen’s father, Cyril Henschke (1924-1979), as a tribute to one of Australia’s outstanding winemaking pioneers, renowned for old-vine single-vineyard and quality varietal table wines. Cyril planted cabernet sauvignon at the Henschke Eden Valley vineyard in the 1960s.
Deep crimson in colour. Matured in 100% new French oak for 18 months. Spicy and perfumed aromas of red and black currant, mulberry and cassis, with nuances of violet and dried herbs, forest moss and hints of cigar box and cedar. Concentrated flavours of black and blue berry fruits, ripe mulberry and black currant are complemented by rich cedar and mocha, while balanced acidity and finely structured tannins provide focus and depth, for a beautiful, lingering finish.
