2015 Henschke Cyril Cabernet Sauvignon
Bottle (75 cl - Standard)
The Henschke family has been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in 1862. Nowadays the vineyards spread in the rolling hills of Eden Valley and the wet, steep slopes of Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. The vines are over 150 years old, among the oldest in the world. Their philosophy is a holistic one – to ensure a healthy balance between vineyards and the natural landscape.
