92pts James Suckling
A blend of shiraz, grenache, mataro and viognier, this has a wealth of rich, darker-toned fruit, as well as raspberry, pepper and fragrant, foresty notes. The palate is supple, fleshy and flavorsome with such open-knit structure and an attractive mix of raspberries and blackberries.
90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Henschke's entry-level red in the US market is the 2020 Henry's Seven, a blend of 72% Shiraz (co-fermented with 3% Viognier), 13% Grenache and 12% Mataro (Mourvedre). It sees just 5% new oak, with the balance aged in older hogsheads. Hints of asphalt and black olives appear on the nose, backed by blueberries, raspberries and black cherries, while the medium to full-bodied palate is supple, marked by soft, almost-powdery tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. Best After 2022
Deep crimson with magenta hues. Fragrant aromas of red currant, raspberry, blueberry and plum with spicy lifts of bay leaf, sage, black pepper and nutmeg. The juicy supple palate is rich and textured with spicy berry fruits, and well-balanced by fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins for a long, elegant finish.
