Henschke Roeslein Barbera 2021


Categories: ,

The Henschke Barbera vines were planted on rocky loam soils adjacent to the nebbiolo in 2002, on a north-facing slope at the source of the North Para River in Eden Valley. The Roeslein (little rose) name is a tribute to the early Roesler (occupational name for rose grower) family property, now the Henschke Eden Valley Vineyard. This small parcel of low-wielding barbera was hand selected and vinified in open-top fermenters, resulting in a medium-bodied, vibrant style.

Henschke Roeslein Barbera 2021 is made from 100% Barbera grown on the Henschke Eden Valley vineyard, managed with organic and biodynamic practices. Matured in 100% seasoned French oak hogsheads for 10 months prior to blending and bottling.

Vibrant ruby in colour with garnet hues with lively aromas of vivid raspberry, red currant, violets and rosehip with notes of anise, milk chocolate and cooking spices. The palate has great energy, with fleshy blueberry, raspberry and red currant, grilled orange peel and bright acidity, driving a long, grainy tannin finish.
