Henschke's Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills

Centennial, Barbera (2008)

Orange, New South Wales
15.3%, cork, around $25

With a nose of prunes and raisins, this medium to full bodied red wine had not benefited from time in the bottle. Notwithstanding the palate of luscious berries and supple tannins, this wine finished with sharp and harsh acidity along with some metallic notes, which tainted the overall impression of the wine - 83.  


  1. 15.3% alcohol. Jeebus !

  2. Yeah - that says it all really. Significantly high alcohol from grapes grown in Orange, which is considered to be a cool climate area.
