STORY

A master blender and visionary winemaker, Maurice O’Shea often blended Shiraz with Pinot Noir and other varieties. In pride of place was a string of 1940s releases named in honour of his great friend and supporter Henri Renault. The Mount Henry was created with a focus on elegance and subtlety rather than sheer power. The 2018 vintage is 80% Shiraz from the 1946 plantings on Rosehill, and 20% Mothervine Pinot Noir from the Estate, planted in 1921.

2018 VINTAGE

Little rainfall and a warm winter resulted in early bud burst for the region. The region recorded lower than average rainfall throughout the growing season resulting in an early vintage. Fruit quality was high with no disease pressure.    With crops being slightly lower than average, harvest was around 8 days earlier than normal, with pristine fruit showing great intensity.

VINIFICATION

The Mount Henry was created with a focus on elegance and subtlety rather than sheer power. The 2018 vintage is 80% Shiraz from the 1946 plantings on Rosehill, and 20% Mothervine Pinot Noir from the Estate, planted in 1921.
