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

Winemaking

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.

Press

  • 96/100 - Cabernet from the Eden Valley has its own cool personality – and absolute authority. It is blackcurrant rather than cassis, with tannins that are firm but not dry, and an elusive touch of mint. The franc and merlot have helped the cabernet show a bit of love, the French oak likewise.

  • 95/100 - This is a very ripe vintage that delivers a greater sense of flesh and flavor to this cooler-climate cabernet blend. Red cherries, mulberries and red plums with cassis and sweet earthy, spicy notes. The palate has alluring soft, deep tannins bathed in flavorsome, rich fruits. A blend of 88% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 5% merlot.

  • 94/100 - Zero rain fell between September and February, but thankfully March rains followed by an Indian summer helped the grapes attain full maturity. This has a sweet-scented palate with inky blackcurrant and cassis flavours alongside ultra-fine, papery tannins. An edge of green peppercorn speaks of the dry, warm vintage, whilst this Cabernet’s poise and clarity reflect the vineyard’s altitude (450m). It finishes long and penetrating, with a hint of rare roast beef. Aged for 18 months in French hogsheads, 42% new. Drinking Window 2018 - 2028
