Henschke Marble Angel 2019

The Barossa has been home to the history and heritage of grapegrowing and winemaking for over five generations. The Barossa was also home to Stephen’s great-uncle Julius Henschke, a famous craftsman, artist and sculptor. Julius was recognized for ornate headstones and angel sculptures at Gnadenberg Cemetery, as well as his most famous work, the inspiring War Memorial on North Terrace in Adelaide. His Angel of Compassion and Duty sculptures are acclaimed across the country. Julius’ craft focused on the most pristine white Angaston marble quarried next to the cabernet sauvignon vineyard at Light Pass, planted on ancient red clay and limestone soil, which brings out exquisite flavor and structure in the wine.

Wine Production

Matured in 14% new and 86% seasoned French hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson with garnet hues. Fragrant aromas of cassis, violets, wild forest berries and crushed flowering herbs are supported by hints of graphite, black olive and cedar. The palate is rich and plush with excellent depth and structure, pure and focused mulberry, blueberry and cassis flavors and long, layered fine-grained tannins.

Food Pairing

Vitello – Free Range, Grass-fed Veal Tenderloin with Prociutto, Sage, Charred Leek, Spinach Croquette and Lemon Butter.
