Other Reviews....
From a vineyard planted in 1968, Henschke's 2016 The Wheelwright Single Vineyard Shiraz offers up classic Eden Valley notes of bay leaves, crushed stone, blueberries and hints of cracked pepper. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, this is a stellar addition to the Henschke lineup, being bottled on its own only since 2015. The tannins are supple, the mouthfeel round and rich and the finish spicy-savory and long. There is a touch of warmth on the finish, but it's as much pepper or licorice as alcohol. A terrific wine, I suspect this will drink well for more than a decade. Drink 2020 - 2035

This is a glorious shiraz with crushed blueberries, white pepper and tea. Full-bodied yet poised and compact with super fine tannins. So long and polished in texture. A new wine from here. Single vineyard. A beautiful wine to drink now.
