The Henschke Marble Angel Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is beautifully, deep crimson in color with violet hues. Lifted aromas of cassis, ripe black and blue berries, anise and plum skin with underlying hints of crushed herbs, cigar box and cedar. Rich, generous layers of black and blue fruits meld with beautifully balanced acidity and finegrained chalky tannins for a long, complex finish.
The Barossa has been home to the history and heritage of grapegrowing and winemaking for over five generations. The Barossa was also home to great-uncle Julius Henschke, a famous craftsman, artist and sculptor. Julius was recognised 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. The Angel of Compassion and Duty sculptures are acclaimed across the country. His 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 flavour and structure in the wine.
