**Save 35% on 2016 Henschke Eleanor's Cottage Sauvignon Blanc Semillon when you purchase 6 or more bottles!**
Grape Varieties: 61% Sauvignon Blanc and 39% Semillon from the Henschke Lenswood vineyard (93%) and Eden Valley vineyard (7%) in the Barossa wine region.
Tasting Note: Pale gold with green-gold hues. Attractive aromas of lemon peel, gooseberry and nectarine with hints of sweet pea, beeswax and fresh meadow grass. The richly fruited palate shows concentrated flavours of gooseberry, white currant and nectarine with zesty lemon and passionfruit nuances. The powerful, ripe acidity and fleshy texture are appealingly persistent for a long and beautiful finish.
Maturation: Fermented in tank and bottled post-vintage to preserve the aromatic fruit characters.
Vintage: The 2016 vintage began with well below-average winter rainfall, followed by a warm and dry spring, which enhanced flowering and set to give average to above-average yield potential. Low disease pressure was maintained by one of the hottest Decembers on record, though temperatures cooled down in the New Year and rainfall around veraison in late January brought relief to the dry-grown, old-vine Eden Valley vineyards. This was followed by further rainfall in early March which eased the stress on all varieties. The fruit matured with an earlier harvest, as predicted due to an early Easter. Open, light and airy vine canopies allowed for good flavour, sugar and colour and mature tannins to develop at harvest, which was overall characterised by average yields but very high quality.
Cellar: Excellent vintage, 10+ years from vintage
