Australian wine has few companies as revered as Henschke Wines, best known for single vineyard shiraz wines Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone.
Henschke produces these iconic red wines from some of the world's oldest vines at its estate in Eden Valley, South Australia.
We're joined this episode by viticulturist Prue Henschke, who has worked with her husband Stephen in the family wine business since 1980.

Most Australian wine drinkers are likely familiar with the style of Barossa Valley shiraz, but I think Eden Valley is possibly less well understood.
I started the episode by asking Prue about the fundamental differences between the wines from these two neighbouring regions.
