Hero Notes:

Not as famous as its Shiraz siblings ‘Hill of Grace’ and ‘Mount Edelstone’, but potentially just as collectable and rewarding.  This wine is a tribute to Stephen Henschke’s father, Cyril, a true pioneer not just of the region, but specifically of Cabernet Sauvignon in Eden Valley.  Meagre soils, dry climate, cooler nights and longer growing season give this Cabernet intense cassis richness and tart, blueberry crunch; leafy, tea-like aromatics; and a smooth texture that is almost like cold cream.
