More information on wine critics and ratings

Vibrant deep crimson with garnet hues. Lifted, fragrant aromas of fresh raspberries, dark plums and cranberries are complemented beautifully by savoury nuances of anise, cumin seeds, cracked black pepper, nutmeg, mace and dried herbs.

The palate is pure, dense and concentrated with ripe raspberry and plum flavours balanced by rustic hints of turned earth, musk stick and black pepper; complex layers of texture and fine-grained velvety tannins.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2018)
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.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2016)
Dried redcurrants, caramelized oranges and a touch of tinned blueberries. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fruit-forward finish.

James Halliday (JH) : 95 Points (2014)
70% grenache, 24% mataro, 6% shiraz vinified separately, matured in used French oak for 10 months, blended shortly prior to bottling. Bright and clear, this is arguably the most delicious slurpable wine in the Henschke stable; it?s got a pinot noir-like note to its texture and mouthfeel.
