Henschke The Wheelwright Shiraz 750mL
Deep purple with violet hues. Alluring aromas of mulberry, blue and black berries, red plum and fresh vanilla bean are carried by nuances of crushed lavender, flowering herbs, bay leaf and black pepper. The palate is wonderfully structured, revealing intense flavours of red berry fruits, dark plum and Swiss chocolate, and finishing rich and textured, with fine-grained tannins and extraordinary length.
Critics Rating: JAMES HALLIDAY HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2016 Vintage "From the estate Eden Valley vineyard. It is medium to full-bodied and fast out of the box in revealing wild blackberry fruits with a savoury/bramble backdrop. Oak has been a means to an end, the taste minimal, leaving room for ripe tannins to complete the picture of yet another high quality shiraz." 97 Points
