“Henley is named in honour of my Grandfather, who passed away at the ripe old age of 102. This wine is the best of the best of our McLaren Vale Shiraz and only a maximum of 10 barrels of the Vintage are set aside for Henley.” – Geoff Merrill
The 2001 “Henley” is sourced from 3 vineyard sites in McLaren Vale, with an average vine age of 45 years. The largest portion of fruit comes from vineyards planted on a limestone base with abundant marine fossils with the balance of the blend from 65 year old vines planted on the flood plains which typically vary in character from silty clay to sandy gravel.
A rare blend of McLaren Vale Shiraz, the pinnacle of what we do. Only 200 dozen were made.
