Why do we love this wine?

There is so much that can be said about the Henschke family and their contribution to Australian wine.  The part of the story we’re highlighting here is the 1980s plantings in the Adelaide Hills around the Lenswood area. Prue and Stephen Henschke were amongst the first to re-plant the region (during the 70s/80s after original 1840s plantings) and set-up what we know know as the premium wine growing region of the Adelaide Hills.  Though firmly established in Barossa, this move to the Hills was a pioneering effort into cool climate region and their research in the area of cool climate viticulture would be a building block for cooler regions across Australia into the future.

This chardonnay is from the Henschke’s own vineyard in Lenswood with 36 year old vines.  It’s a beautifully balanced wine that shows the freshness of the cool climate, with the kind of oak that works so well with chardonnay. 10 months in French oak (14% new) is integrated into a platte of stone fruit, spice and floral notes.  A wine with detail to contemplate, but very easy to simply enjoy.
