Tasting Note

Deep crimson with red hues. Concentrated and complex aromas of cassis, black and red currants, blackberry leaf and violets with underlying savoury nuances of crushed dried herbs, cigar box, beef stock and anise spice, all supported by dark cedary French oak. A flood of rich blackberry and bright red currants greet the palate, which is precisely defined by purity of acidity, an elegant structure and layers of long, silky fine-grained tannins that provide great persistence.

"This is one of Australia’s greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters)...It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own."

—James Halliday

Overall winner, Cabernet Sauvignon - 2018 Mamba Awards

The cabernet sauvignon label carries the name Cyril Henschke (1924-1979) as a tribute to one of Australia’s outstanding winemaking pioneers, renowned for the production of varietal table wines, with the accent on quality and flavour. Cyril Henschke planted cabernet sauvignon at Eden Valley in the 1960s.


  • 97/100 - This is one of Australia’s greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters). The argument evaporates when you admit – as you must- that those wines are in such different styles it’s an apples and oranges comparison. The real comparison is between this and Mount Mary. It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own.

  • 97/100 - This is one of the most impressive Cyrils I can remember: very elegant, supple and beautifully balanced, without any obvious leafy vegetal notes although unmistakably cabernet. There are raspberry notes typical of Eden Valley, as well as foresty, earthy and autumnal notes partly due to emerging bottle-age characters. The tannins are supple and melting. A superb wine...Drink 2017 to 2037.

  • 5 stars - A cabernet sauvignon-led blend with cabernet franc and merlot in support, gorgeous blackberry flavours dominate the fruit spectrum with lifts of blackcurrant flowers and lavender adding a wonderful fragrance across the whole passage. More seasoned oak than new encourages elegance and medium weight, the expected varietal tannins have integrated well, and the wine finishes in beautiful, long-lasting harmony. Best with: Asian-flavoured beef cheek.
