Named as a tribute to the early German Silesian pioneers of the Barossa, many of whom carried the first name of Johann. Barossa growers traditionally referred to their vineyard as their ‘garden’, from the German weingarten.  It is produced from low-yielding, dry-farmed parcels of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. A combination of gnarly old bush vines and trellised vines on limestone soils from selected Barossa Valley vineyards.

Crimson with garnet hues. Bright, lifted aromas of redcurrant, rosehip and raspberry develop into concentrated baked plum pudding with spicy notes. The soft, luscious palate is complemented by complex flavours of spiced berry compote, raspberry and red liquorice. An elegant style with fine, velvety tannins and balanced acidity. A great match for mature hard cheeses or a shepherds pie.

    Description

    The Henschke family have been making wine at their estate in the Eden Valley since 1868. Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke took over running the winery in 1979. Together with his viticulturist wife, Prue, they have taken their two single vineyards, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone, and transformed them into two of Australia’s most sought-after wines. Through a combination of great viticulture from Prue, named ‘Outstanding Viticulturalist 2020’, who is at the forefront of re-introducing native plants into their vineyards to improve biodiversity, and winemaking from Stephen, they have built upon their inheritance and turned this traditional producer into one that is celebrated all around the world.

    The 2018 Johann's Garden is a blend of 77% Grenache, 19% Mataro and 4% Shiraz, all matured in older French hogsheads. Scents of cola and spice meet plums and black cherries, but this is a bit reserved on the nose, with the explosiveness left to the full-bodied, lush palate. Generous and mouth-filling and marked by supple tannins and ripe fruit, it's plump and round, with a softly dusty finish. Gulpable now, it should add some spice nuances over the next several years as the fruit gently fades.
