The Hennings vineyard is part of a family owned farm that was established by Henning Rathjen in 1858. He was the first to plant vines in the Heathcote region producing wines up until the 1920’s when the vineyard was eventually abandoned. It wasn’t until 1998 when Daryl Rathjen decided to replant the 30 acre vineyard on the same original site that production started again. Winemakers David and Liam Anderson from Wild Duck Creek are in charge of winemaking so its no surprise that the resultant wines are hefty, super rich examples of Heathcote Shiraz. Maturation took place in French oak, 30% of which was new.
Incredibly rich and plush this is one Hedonistic Heathcote Shiraz.
Superb colour saturation displaying an impenetrable inky black core and a very deep dark purple black hue. Intense ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark plum aromas seduce the olfactory senses with ensuing vanillin oak, dark chocolate, subtle earth and spice notes. Densely concentrated, thick and incredibly rich, the mouth is engulfed with lavish blackberry, liquorice and ripe black cherry fruits. Sitting underneath are vanillin oak, dark chocolate and subtle spicy earth elements. Plushly textured with silky smooth tannins it finishes with magnificent power, depth and a long opulently fruited aftertaste.
Drink this voluptuous beauty over the next 5-6 years.
