1996 Henschke Lenswood Abbotts Prayer

Lenswood, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$99.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

The Henschke Lenswood vineyard is just 50 km from the historic Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace vineyards. The site was chosen because of the higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of year, cooler temperatures to retain natural acidity and enough sunshine to fully ripen the fruit. After two drought years, the 1996 vintage saw a near perfect growing season which resulted in yields 20% above average. The cooler conditions experienced during this vintage also allowed for a long, slow ripening period which resulted in very good flavour development in the grapes. Made from a blend of 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. Medium weight, crimson colour. The nose displays aromas of mushroom and earthy truffles. On the palate the flavours move to reflect the ripe vintage conditions and display flavours of chocolate, liquorice and truffles. Excellent depth, fine firm tannins with long earthy, truffle spice, chocolate and liquorice aftertaste. Cellar 5-8 years.
