Silky Grenache heavy blend, strawberry and sour cherry notes with a hint of licorice, and earl grey. Really delicious

#gsm #grenache blend #barossa #aussiewine very drinkable. Smooth and much lighter than I would have expected. Overpriced in my opinion

Lush and open in that inviting Aussie way, but still more serious than most of its counterparts. Damson plum, kirsch, some fennel and freshly picked blueberry. It’s got length and depth and those cashmere tannins

Nothing like drinking Henschke in Australia. Haven’t had this wine, predominantly Grenache, about 5% shiraz. Really inexpensive (about 50 au dollars). Absolutely fantastic and the reason I love Henschke wines, amazing combination of tobacco strawberries, licorice and plum but really juicy and not-oily or overdone. I used to think McPrice Myers beautiful earth was the best wine for the money but this has it beat. Just brilliant.
