Tasting Note

The Henschke Tappa Pass Shiraz is sourced from old low yielding Barossa vineyards that yield grapes of amazing depth and concentration. The palate is rich and complex, with layers of sweet-fruited blueberry and plum flavours, showing great purity, depth and structure. Fine, encompassing, velvety tannins glide along with the plush fruit, finishing with wonderful length and lingering flavours of plum skin and black pepper. Very deep crimson in colour.

The Barossa has a core of traditional growers of Lutheran descent dating back five generations, staunchly continuing the traditions of their forebears. Occasionally, one or two parcels of fruit of overwhelming quality come over the weighbridge; this is such an example. Up to 70 year old, low-yielding vines are growing in low-fertility Neoproterozoic soils more than 542 million years old, ranging from terra rossa to red-brown earths. The fully ripe, black shiraz grapes were sourced from two grower vineyards in Tappa Pass and Light Pass, and were vinified in traditional open-top fermenters.


The tiny-berried, fully mature black shiraz grapes were sourced from grower vineyards in Tappa Pass and Light Pass and were vinified in traditional open-top fermenters and then matured for two years in new (45%) and seasoned (55%) French oak barrels.


  • Judges were unanimous in their verdict of Gold for this top-end Shiraz, with Maze by Gordon Ramsay’s Gabriele Bertotti describing it as ‘elegant, with good fruit character’, while Elena Serban of Hakkasan found it to have ‘fresh, intense bright fruit with notes of clove and tar’. Daniel Jonberger of Rockliffe Hall thought it was ‘soft and juicy, with lots of hibiscus and notes of vanilla, with rich blueberries too, and a long, pleasant aftertaste’.
