Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 93 Points (2018)
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.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2018)
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.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2018)
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.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2017)
This refined red offers up-front smoky, peppery aromas, with touches of smoked paprika and espresso mingling with the dense blueberry and blackberry flavors at the core. The tannins are firm but polished, revealing hints of dried floral and mocha on the finish. Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2031. 

James Halliday (JH) : 92 Points (2015)
65% shiraz, 20% grenache, 10% mataro, 5% viognier - the numbers add up to a balanced blend; vibrant raspberry and black-berried fruits and wafts of florals, pepper and musk. Medium-weighted with crunchy acidity and shapely tannins make this immediately approachable.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2015)
This is the Henschke’s shiraz-grenache-mataro blend, with five percent viognier cofermented with the shiraz. The viognier might point up the tannins as well as the floral, anise scent of the blend. Those tannins have a green peppercorn spice that adds to the wine’s brightness, accenting the cool notes of strawberries. It’s gamey and rustic, a wine for grilled eggplant and lamb.

Torbreck The Steading 2017
If any one wine we produce most exemplifies what Torbreck is, then it's this wine, our ode to the great old vines, planted at the turn of last century, that survived the vine-pull scheme of the 1980's.
