||Henschke Cellars Marble Angel Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The Barossa has been home to grapegrowing and winemaking families for six generations. Stephen’s great-uncle Julius Henschke grew up at the family winery, and in his adult years became a famous craftsman, artist and sculptor. Julius was recognised for ornate headstones and angel sculptures at Gnadenberg Cemetery, as well as his most famous work, the inspiring War Memorial on North Terrace in Adelaide. His Angel of Compassion and Duty sculptures are acclaimed across the country. Julius’ craft focused on the most pristine white Angaston marble quarried next to the cabernet sauvignon vineyard at Light Pass, planted on ancient red clay and limestone soil, which brings out exquisite flavour and structure in the wine.
