Winemaker Notes

68% grenache, 17% mourvèdre and 15% shiraz.
Bright crimson in color. Sweet ripe lifted aromas of cherry plums, raspberry, rhubarb and anise. Hints of spicy nutmeg, clove and mace with smoky cedar nuances. The palate is rich and full with supple layered fleshy texture and ripe sweet plum/prune flavors; concentrated and complex with layers of velvety tannins, good balance, weight and length.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Johann’s Garden is a blend of 68% Grenache, 17% Mourvedre, and 15% Shiraz aged for 12 months in seasoned oak. Medium crimson-colored, it emits a sexy aromatic array of lavender, wood smoke, forest floor, leather, cherry, and blueberry. This leads to a broad-shouldered, ripe, easygoing wine with savory, complex flavors, excellent depth, and a long, soft finish. This pleasure-bent wine can be enjoyed over the next eight years.

Wine Enthusiast

Johann’s Garden gives consumers a taste of the Henschke mystique at a reasonable price. A blend of 68% Grenache, 17% Mourvèdre and 15% Shiraz, it offers restrained, elegant aromas of cherry and cassis with a lifted hint of mint, then adds richer notes of coffee and chocolate on the palate. It’s full-bodied and creamy in texture, with a lush, mouthwatering finish. Drink now–2016.
