2013 Henschke Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon Eden Valley – 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 Henschke’s Eden Valley vineyard in the 1960s.
A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc & 5% Merlot.
Deep crimson in colour.
Fragrant aromas of black currant, cassis, dark plum and blue and black berry fruits. Floral violet nuances, and enticing notes of bramble, dried herbs and spice are layered with just a hint of cedar and graphite complexity.
The palate is focussed and lush, with wild blue, black and red berry fruit flavours complemented by layers of dried herbs, spice, vanilla and cedar. An elegant thread of acidity and fine rolling tannins provide structure and poise.
