External Reviews for Henschke Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Johann's Garden
Henschke is one of the great producers of the Barossa Valley that makes wines that can and do cellar well. This bottle is full of dense, dark berried compote fruit but also boasts chocolate, rosemary and peppercorns. A blend based on Shiraz and Grenache.
The shiraz, grenache, viognier, mourvèdre blend is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry’s death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her temperance convictions by closing the winery and uprooting all the winegrapes. This blend highlights the historical introduction of southern French and Spanish varieties to South Australia in those early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of the Barossa. The Viognier is co-fermented with Shiraz, whilst the Grenache and Mourvedre are vinified separately. The wine is matured in older French hogsheads for 15 months prior to blending and bottling. There are aromas of sweet, lifted, spicy blueberries, plums, blackberries, anise and mace, with stone-fruit and floral hints. It shows soft, rich and bright spicy peppery fruit on the palate. The texture is juicy and lush with layers of velvety tannins and great length. Pair it with spiced, grilled lamb.
