Henschke, Johann.s Garden, Grenache / Mourvedre / Syrah, Barossa Valley, Australia, 2015

£36.00

One of Australia’s finest wineries. Producing since Johann Henschke planted a small vineyard in 1862 – which was originally just for family consumption. Until someone got their hands on some of their produce and the wheels were set in motion for Henschke to become one of the most revered properties on the continent. Their greatest wine, The Hill of Grace is a truly astounding wine and that class passes down throughout their range. This is a Grenache/Mourvedre/Syrah blend (“GSM”) from meticulously well-looked-after single vineyards from the region.
