Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Deep crimson with ruby hues. Attractive aromas of spiced plum, red currant and blue and black berry fruits are met with floral nuances of violets and black pepper spice. The round, supple palate is filled with juicy blue and red fruits, spiced plum, liquorice and notes of crushed tarragon, with beautifully textured svelte tannins and a long, peppery finish.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
A classic Aussie blend from a classic Aussie producer, this wine needs time in decanter if drinking now for those funky reductive notes to blow off. When they do, the tang of cherries, currants and plums reveal themselves, with more delicate floral notes and a prominent line of earthy, savory, spicy, characters, like a damp forest on a cool morning. Powerful, yet more approachable young than other Henschke reds, well-placed tannins weave through the plush fruit and earthy spice lingers on the finish. Drink until 2035.

92 Points - James Suckling
Such good value here, this offers so much young complexity with charcuterie and swirling spices dressing ripe plums and blackberries, thanks to the 67%shiraz, co-fermented with 6% viognier. The 17% grenache and 10% mataro add treble and bass to a substantially fleshy mid-section that is packed with ripe-blackberry flavors. Forget the numbers, it’s all about drinkability.

91 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 67% Shiraz (co-fermented with 6% Viognier), 17% Grenache and 10% Mataro, the 2018 Henry's Seven boasts aromas of boysenberries and blueberries. plus hints of dried spices. Matured in 5% new and 95% seasoned French hogsheads for nine months prior to blending and bottling, oak is a minor element, with the fruit flavors coming through loud and clear on the medium to full-bodied palate. It's supple and easy to drink, with a hint of stone fruit on the long and softly dusty finish.
