Henschke Henry's Seven 2012


SKU 089208400287


Deep crimson with violet hues. Intense aromas of red and blue fruits, ripe plums and morello cherries are lifted by notes of exotic florals and stone-fruits, with mocha and bitter chocolate nuances. The palate shows rich, lush and juicy wild berry and satsuma plum flavours, with a hint of anise and kirsch; velvety, fine-grained tannins provide texture and length for a beautifully svelte finish.

Wine AdvocateAlso a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Viognier and Mourvedre, the 2012 Henry's Seven has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with a wonderfully perfumed nose of violets and lavender over a core of black raspberries, black cherries and red currants plus some spice cake and cinnamon toast nuances. Medium to full-bodied and bursting with gorgeous, mouth-filling red berry flavors, it has crisp acid and a low to medium level of soft tannins before finishing long. Very approachable now, it should keep to 2019+.
