Yet another Barossa Jewel
The Barossa has been home to the history and heritage of grape-growing and winemaking for over five generations. The Barossa was also home to Julius Henschke, a famous craftsman, artist and sculptor. Julius was recognised for ornate headstones and angel sculptures at Gnadenberg Cemetery, as well as his most famous work, the inspiring War Memorial on North Terrace in Adelaide. The Angel of Compassion and Duty sculptures are acclaimed across the country. His craft focused on the most pristine white Angaston marble quarried next to the cabernet sauvignon vineyard at Light Pass, planted on ancient red clay and limestone soil, which brings out exquisite flavour and structure in the wine.
100% Single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from 40 years old vines aged in 40% new and 60% seasoned French hogsheads for 18 months has produced a deep crimson with violet hues wine. Sweet, lifted aromas of cassis, ripe black and blue berries, anise and plum skin with underlying hints of crushed herbs, cigar box and cedar dominate the nose. Rich, generous layers of black and blue fruits meld with beautifully balanced acidity and fine-grained chalky tannins for a long, complex finish. This is an exceptional wine with cellaring potential of 25+ years. Released in October last year it is very limited, with only a few dozen available.
