The Henschke Stone Jar Tempranillo 2015 pays tribute to the original Henschke settlers and their rich and wonderfully varied traditions, which were carried on for generations. Stephen’s grandfather Paul Alfred sold his wine to local customers in stone jars, which in the Barossa was called a krug. The tempranillo and graciano vines were planted on rocky soils on the north facing slope at the range overlooking the village of Eden Valley, grown using organic and biodynamic practices and made using traditional winemaking techniques. In 2015, a small parcel of mataro was co-fermented with tempranillo and incorporated into the final blend.
Deep crimson with purple hues. Enticing aromas of Satsuma plums, red cherries and raspberries, supported by fragrant hints of crushed flowering herbs, peppercorns, mace and struck flint. On the palate, soft, fine, rolling tannins intertwine with succulent red and blue berries and spice, balanced by bright red cherry acidity and layers of texture, driven by a long finish
