Henschke Five Shillings

Description

Deep crimson with violet hues. Fragrant aromas of rhubarb, Satsuma plum and red and black currant are entwined with spicy notes of anise, mace and white pepper. A rich and plush palate, with concentrated fruit flavours of black currant and plum, is complemented by balanced acidity and textural, velvety tannins for a long, rolling finish.

Shiraz 69% Mataro 31%

Five Shillings pays tribute to Paul Gotthard, the second-generation Henschke winemaker of the early Barossa Lutheran pioneers of South Australia. In 1862 he and his pioneering father Johann Christian established the Henschke winery in the high country of the historic Eden Valley, planted seven acres of vines, and in 1868 sold the first wines. In 1873, after a transfer of five shillings, he continued on the winemaking tradition from his father and began to build a reputation for quality wines. Among the first wines they produced in the 1860s were ‘dry white’ (likely made from riesling) and ‘dry red’ (likely made from shiraz and mataro). This wine replicates the blend of Gotthard’s early ‘dry reds’ and is produced from low yielding, ungrafted, biodynamically grown Eden Valley shiraz planted on 540 million-year-old red-brown earths, and blended with mataro growing on the sandy soils of the Barossa Valley.
