An Evening with Henshke
Tuesday 25th June | 6.30pm
7 wines | 5 dishes | $175pp
Exceptional wines from outstanding sustainable vineyards.
Fiona Mcdonald - House of Fine Wines - hosts an exclusive evening showcasing 7 grape varietals hailing from the family ran vineyards.
Henschke boasts an extensive range, with a focus on ultra-premium, single-vineyard and small parcel wines, beautifully handcrafted by fifth-generation Stephen and Prue Henschke, from sustainably grown vineyards using organic and biodynamic practices in the Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills.
The varied wine list will begin with the 2018 ‘Julius’ Riesling produced in the Eden Valley Vineyard - marginal sweetness balanced with soft acidity. Leisurely working our way up to the 2016 ‘Tappa Pass’ - a rich and complex shriaz, with layers of sweet-fruited blueberry and plum flavours.
With over 150 years experience and six generations of winemakers, the Henschke family vow to carry on past traditions while leading into the future. Committed to sustainability, the family philosophy is to ensure the created environment sits in a healthy balance with the natural landscape.
