Fine Wine Tasting of wines of Henschke @ Bacco | Twickenham | United Kingdom

A truly extraordinary tasting of an iconic Australian estate – Henscke. Their Hill of Grace Shiraz is now reckoned to be Australia’s finest single vineyard Shiraz and I believe it has outperformed the legendary Penfolds Grange in recent years – earning a £500/bottle price point in the process.

The Henschke family have made wine in Eden Valley since 1868 and Stephen Henschke is the fifth generation proprietor, who alongside his viticulturalist wife Prue, have overseen a dramatic transformation of the estate.

We will taste through eight wines with an average price over £100/bottle, and enjoy a three course meal at the wonderful Bacco restaurant in Richmond.

Wines we will taste:
Louis Semillon 2017 Eden Valley
Julius Riesling 2020 Eden Valley
Croft Chardonnay 2018 Adelaide Hills
Giles Pinot Noir 2018 Lenswood
Johanns GSM blend 2017 Barossa Valley
Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2015 Eden Valley
Hill of Grace 2015 Shiraz Eden Valley

Fine wine tasting dinners are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and also runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies.  He is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery. Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.

“Throughout the 17 years I have attended Tim’s wine tasting events, he has continued to deliver his extensive knowledge of wine and wine-making with great charm, and lots of humour, making the evenings not only informative, but also great fun. In the course of an average year, the tastings cover a kaleidoscope of different wine themes – interesting and entertaining for all, novices and experts alike. And the wines taste pretty good too!”

“We have been going to Teddington Wine Society events for a number of years. Tim runs the evenings with bonhomie and humour and wears his considerable knowledge lightly. The evenings are great fun, the wines are always a little bit different and help to expand knowledge and tasting horizons.”

“I have attended the Richmond Wine society for over ten years and always enjoyed Tim’s self-effacing style and gentle humour. His knowledge is globally eclectic and presented in a clear, interesting and always stimulating way. Every guest I have taken there has enjoyed the evening immensely. Tim also offers a wide range of wines to buy and my red cellar has provided great pleasure to my own dinner guests.”

“I’ve been enjoying Tim’s tastings for over 20 years – he is a great teacher, raconteur and wine expert. He is seriously passionate about his wine, but there is nothing serious about his tastings, which are always informal and relaxed. A lovely way to spend an evening and enjoy some fantastic wines.”
