The Henschke family has been making wine in the Barossa’s Eden Valley wine region since 1868. Today, fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his viticulturist wife Prue are recognised around the world for their exceptional quality wines, innovative spirit, focus on restoring native vegetation and organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard. The Henschke winemaking tradition now spans over 150 years and six generations, with vineyards in the Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills, including acclaimed single-vineyards, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone. Henschke was the 2021 Wine Enthusiast New World Winery of the Year, 2021 Halliday Wine Companion Winery of the Year, and has been recognised for outstanding efforts in sustainable wine production with the Robert Parker Wine Advocate Green Emblem.

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.
