An evening with Johann Henschke


I was delighted to be invited to an evening of wine tasting held at Burberry’s Flagship store in Sydney.

Johann Henschke is the sixth generation family member and presented some of its finest single-vineyard wines and describes the legacy of his family.

On arrival:

Lenswood blanc de noir
Salmon rillette On Brioche

We headed upstairs to the exclusive Heritage Room, this is where the tasting will begin.  The room reminds me of a great boardroom meeting room, with its dark rich wooden floors and walls.  This is where important decisions happen, and no better place to host an evening with Henschke wines.

Henschke boasts a strong portfolio, with a focus on ultra-premium single-vineyard wines. They maintain their ‘Exceptional wines from outstanding vineyards’ by sourcing additional fruit from growers of excellence, from the Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills regions.  While they are perhaps most famous for Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone, they continue to surprise with their new styles and techniques.
