Winemaker Notes

Bright straw with a green hue. Sweet, fragrant aromas of pear and grapefruit with underlying notes of toasted cashew and clove. A rich, layered palate of minerals and creamy cashew nuts, clove spice and pear skin add to the fine, long, citrus/stone-fruit palate.

Critical Acclaim

JH 94
Australian Wine Companion

A fine-boned and structured wine, with a pleasing savoury grip to the finish; in between, as it were, there are flavours of grapefruit, green apple and white peach on the long, even palate.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

Fresh scents of Marcona almonds and peach pit give this pale chardonnay a delicate profile. Mouthwatering acidity makes it a clean white to serve now with roast fish, or one to cellar for further flavor development.

Henschke
The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in Eden Valley in 1862. Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines, including the world-famous Shiraz wines, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
