Notes sourced from Henschke.

Cyril Henschke (1924-1979) was one of Australia's outstanding winemakers and a pioneer in the production of varietal table wines, with the accent on quality and flavour. The Cabernet Sauvignon label continues to carry his name as a tribute.

A wet winter with average rainfall during the four-month winter period, followed by a mild dry spring, led to excellent growth, good set and vigour. However frosts caused damage in some vineyards. A mild, late Indian summer ended the cool season, ensuring excellent ripening conditions and accumulation of colour and flavour.

Made from a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Very deep crimson and ruby in colour. Intense berry-fruits, cassis and sweet herbal aromas with a hint of soy, chocolate and mocha. A well-structured palate with great length exhibiting concentrated cedar, cassis, anise and tar. Cellar 7 years.
